“I spoke this morning to him on the phone, he is in a really good mood so it’s all very promising but I don’t know when he will be back.

“There are for sure a lot of stages still to go over or to pass, whatever, that’s clear. I had this injury myself.

“For the time we are in and for how long he is out now, how long the rehabilitation is going on, he looks really, really promising.”
