Positive thinking for Arsenal star

Arsenal hope to have Eduardo back within 9 months. He should be up and running again in six months.

The Croatia striker who cost the Gunners £7.5 m says he is determined to make a quick return to the game after undergoing surgery for the horrific injury he suffered at St Andrews on Saturday.

It’s very important to be positive. His team mates must visit him as much as possible. The mental and physical effects are something that he will have to deal with at a crucial stage of recuperation.

“All I remember is that when I fell, I looked down at my foot and it had turned the other way. The rest is just a blank,” he said.

“My concentration is on making as quick a recovery as possible. I am determined to overcome this injury.”

His injury shows just how volatile a professional footballers career can be.

The 25-year-old was just beginning to show the Arsenal fans what he was made of with a run in the side and some stunning goals along the way.

He will definitely miss the rest of the season and Euro 2008. The Arsenal boss fears his layoff could be much longer.

“It was an unfortunate situation but these things can happen in football,” Eduardo added.

“I would like to say how touched I am by the many messages of support I have received and to be surrounded by my loved ones at this time.”

    Eduardo was just getting into form and is one of the least deserving strikers in the premiership of an injury. As much as i wouldn’t wish that injury upon anyone anywhere, Gallas got me sooooo close to wishing it was him ! pathetic excuse of a footballer and captain. You get 40,000 a week which some firemen don’t get and you sit on a pitch after a match to cry? Get over it wuss.

    Whilst it is a dreadful shame that Eduardo has picked up this injury, and I wish him a swift recovery, am I the only one who is getting a bit bored with the level of coverage it is getting. 3 days on it is still the headline on Sky Sports News on the hour, with them dredging up more and more people to comment on how horrific it was.
    Jimmy Bullard got an equally horrific injury last season, but didn’t merit this kind of coverage. If it had been a Birmingham player getting injured by an Arsenal player it wouldn’t have the same coverage. He’s injured, its a shame, hopefully he’ll get over it and return as good as he was. Why can’t we all just move on and perhaps discuss just how good a job David Moyes is doing perhaps, or how O’Neill turns everything he touches to gold….

    Both of your comments are completely rubbish…you should never comment on things as you obviously have no knowledge of what you’re talking about.

    I wouldn’t worry about it mate, Tibbets supports Leicester and Aslan supports Man United and lives in London, say no more.
