Manchester United striker James Wilson is continuing his recovery from an anterior cruciate ligament injury suffered this season while on loan at Derby County.
The young striker was just beginning to make progress towards winning a first team place for the Championship club when the injury struck him down in training in October. Since then, the 21 year old has been back at United's training ground Carrington in rehabilitation after terminating his loan at the iPro. He is still confined to gym and pool work currently, but he hopes to return to training on the turf soon. He hopes to maintain a positive outlook as he continues his return, with no end in sight yet: "I think, for anyone, it’s tough to come back from this sort of setback. It depends how you look at it. Like I’ve said a few times, I’ve taken the positives out of it and just not tried to rush anything. I think I’m doing quite well really. I can see progress between what I am like now and what I was like after surgery...." Thu, Mar 30, 2017 02:14:00 PM
