Shorey Confident Of Bouma Recovery

Shorey Confident Of Bouma Recovery

Nicky Shorey has said that he fully expects Freddy Bouma to come roaring back next season from his nightmare injury.

Freddy's recovery hasn't exactly been ideal, from finding floating bits of bone and then breaking down just as he thought he was making progress, it definitely hasn't been a great 12 months for our Dutch fullback.

But Shorey believes Bouma will be back and challenging for his left back spot in time to help Villa during our next campaign.

Speaking on the official site, the diminutive player said:

'Villa has competition for places and that's one of the reasons I came here.'

Nope, I'm behaving, I'll leave that there.

'I was as gutted as anyone when Freddy didn't come back as quickly as we all hoped after that horrific injury.

'We just hope he'll be back for pre season fighting fit now. I think everyone wants to see that and I'm no different. Freddy is a great lad.'

I know it's a fluffy story from the OS, there's very little other news about but Shorey does seem genuine in his comments even if the sarcastic amongst you will say he'd have rather been kept out the side by a natural leftback.

Shorey's future is still in doubt if you believe the rumours, so it's good to hear him being so positive about his teammates, but by the same token the longer Freddy takes to recover the more you wonder whether that tackle was worse than we all imagined during the Odense match.

I think I speak for all in saying, I desperately hope that isn't the case.

Personally I want Shorey to stay. Players need time to settle not just a couple of months but a whole season especially when they go from Big Fish in a small pond to little fish in a big pond. I reckon we'll see much improvement from both Shorey and the ginga ninja Hands up who's glad Villa stuck it out with Petrov?

I was at that match in the lower holte and you could hear him screaming, it was a very bad tackle, but i wouldn't of imagine him being out so long.

I like Shorey, think he has been ok for us. As for Freddy, so hope he does return, the rumours not long back were he was about to retire after several failed attempts at come backs. Fingers crossed he is back and fit soon.
