Laursen Targeting February Return

Laursen Targeting February Return

Villa defender Martin Laursen has told viasatsport.com, of which I'm a regular reader ;-) that his recuperation from his latest injury set back is going well and he is eager to prove his worth once he is back and fit.

The Danish defender, who picked up an injury in the League Cup loss to Chelsea in November, is on course to return in February.

He said:

'It's going excellently. It's been five weeks out of the expected three months, but things are in order and I am quite optimistic.'

Adding: 'Both Liam Ridgewell and Gary Cahill have done well, but it's just up to me to prove that I am good enough when I am back.'

We've all been here before, but yes, a fully fit (and able to stay fit) Martin Laursen will be a tremendous boost to the Villa Park cause.

exactly glensider, why would we then want to sign upson who's not as good and just as injury prone? if MON wants another defender then he'd buy someone who can stay fit.

The sooner the better. He was awesome until he got injured.

Glen again got to agree, if the dog never stopped for a shyt he would have caught the rabbit............ A quality player but a poor signing overall.

Top quality player and I feel for him always picking up injuries. We miss him when he doesn't play in my opinion (though the 2 youngsters have done a tremendous job so far!).

I'll believe it only when I see it, but good luck to him. We need him back and fully fit.
