"I am feeling very good," said the Portuguese international. "I have just starting working hard on the field to recover as fast as possible and the physios feel I will be fit to train and play in two to three weeks.
"I have been out for many weeks so I am doing stamina work at the moment. I miss working with the ball but it has to be like this.
"The important thing now is to recover well and then try and help the team in as many games as possible."
