The Manchester City midfielder Jack Rodwell arrived from the Premier league rivals Everton for £ 12 million in the summer, but he has played very little football for the Premier league champions due to a succession of injury problems. It had already been his major problem when he was at Everton. Rodwell was linked with every major club like Manchester United and Chelsea. He was even spoken in the same breath as the former Everton youth team product Wayne Rooney, but injuries have curtailed his career over the last few years. He has recently been making a few first-team appearances for City.
However, his hopes of finishing his debut season on a high appeared to have ended following yet another injury. Rodwell had to be taken off in the 1-0 victory over Aston Villa recently. It appeared that the injury could well end his season, but the midfielder has said that he is confident of making a swift comeback. The 22-year-old has primarily suffered a hamstring problems in the last few years, and it was once again the problem hitting him. Rodwell, though, has said that he hopes to be back in training in a few weeks time unlike before. The player spent several months on the sidelines with the same problem earlier in the season.
“Obviously you don’t want to tempt fate but I’m not looking at this as a lengthy absence and I hope to be back [in training] in a couple of weeks. Hopefully I can play my part in the run-in and help us win some silverware and end what has been a frustrating season on a high. I felt a jabbing pain just before I took a shot at Villa Park and I knew straight away I had a problem,” said the midfielder, who had an excellent match against Chelsea recently.
