Steffen's Diary

Posted on 14 February 2002  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Steffen Freund gives us an update on his rehabilitation from his cruciate injury and our German is already on his bike!

I AM DELIGHTED to report that I'm back on the exercise bike already, I've had no reaction and the knee looks well.

I'm quite surprised. It's going fast-forward now.

I'm sweating on the bike and I do some exercise on the leg as well because I lost a lot of muscle on my thigh. That happens when you have a bad injury and that's why it takes a long time to come back.

I'm pleased with how it is going because I only got injured a month ago and the surgery was only three weeks ago.

The next three weeks will be difficult because you think 'I can walk without the brace, I can do everything without the brace' but you have to be careful, if you make a wrong step and you don't have the brace on the ligament can be ruptured again.

Anyway, I've already said that I hope to return in time for the start of next season and things are going well so far.
