Gerrard Sets Comeback Date

By on September 7, 2011

Steven Gerrard has pencilled in Liverpool’s clash with Tottenham at White Hart Lane as his comeback game.

The Reds maestro has been out injured for more than five months following groin surgery. The 31-year-old, who has only played six games for the Reds since Kenny Dalglish returned as manager. He said on Liverpool’s official website:

“I feel really good and I’m back kicking balls again – it’s all positive.

“I should be back in full training with the team on Thursday or Friday of next week.

“I won’t be involved against Stoke next Saturday but my plan is to hopefully be involved in the game against Tottenham. It will be Kenny’s decision when I come back in.”

Liverpool play Spurs at White Hart Lane on September 18, Gerrard added:

“At the moment it’s all good and I’m itching to get back. In fact it’s worse than itching, my stomach is turning.

“It’s been a tough five months for me since I had the surgery. It’s been up and down emotionally and I’ve missed playing so much.

“I’ve had a good rest, I’m fired up and I’m raring to go again. I know I’m going to come back fitter, stronger and hungrier than ever.”

He said: “Since coming out of hospital my rehab has gone really well. I’m really happy and positive again. My groin is as strong as it’s ever been.

“My groin is tested when I’m working and the physios collect data. My groin scores now are better than before I even started feeling my groin.

“What I’ve done over the past four weeks tells me that’s the case and I’ve got total confidence in it.”
