A long time ago someone once said to me that the AVERAGE amount of time it takes for a player to go from on field activity to back in the starting 11 is twice the amount of time he spent injured and NOT doing on field activities. Did that make sense?
Hes been out what now? 1 month? So if he started on field activities tomorrow that would put him back in the starting 11 around August 1st. And even then he wont be in prime form. Im starting to get concerned.
Groin is a pretty tough injury to come back from. From running a lot to run marathons in my early 20s, I always found groin, hamstring and achilles injuries the most annoying to come back from. Just walking around normally can make them worse and you pretty much feel them the whole day. Also, if you come back too soon from it, the injury is going to come back for sure. So, I doubt he is able to run and maintain match fitness. He is a professional athlete and has a lot of resources at his disposal but I would be shocked if he comes back before the 28th of June.
