Christian Eriksen is set to step up his recovery from injury as he attempts to at least play some role at Manchester United and secure a potential treble.
The Manchester United midfielder suffered an ankle injury during an FA Cup win over Reading in January, raising concerns that it would end his first season at Old Trafford prematurely.
However, the Danish international is optimistic that he can return before United’s season, which could lead to further FA Cup and Europa League honors following their EFL Cup triumph, comes to an end.
“Yes, everything is going well. I just started to be outside as you saw [on Instagram] in football boots,” he told the club’s website.
“And then we come from there, that’s the next step. I’ve been in the gym for a few weeks and now it’s time for my next rehab session outside.”
“I think at the beginning of my career I would have taken it a lot harder than I do now.
“Later you will find out that this is just part of your career. Sometimes you are lucky, sometimes not.
“Particularly with this, when I can’t do anything myself, when someone comes to me, the thinking is just to come back in a healthy, strong way as soon as possible and not get any setbacks.”
