Leicester impressing

Before the current campaign was curtailed, Leicester looked set to bag themselves a place in next season’s Champions League.

The Foxes were sat 3rd in the Premier League, eight points clear of 5th place.

Leicester even looked like they had an outside chance of mounting a title challenge earlier in the campaign but those hopes faded when their form dipped off.

Even with a slight dip in results though, Brendan Rodgers and co. had still had a very impressive season.

One of their key players this term had been Ricardo Pereira.

The attack-minded full-back had notched up 33 appearances across all competitions this season, in which he had scored four and assisted three.

However, the defender’s campaign was brought to an abrupt halt vs Aston Villa in early March.

Pereira gives injury update

Rodgers would confirm on March 12th that Pereira will miss the rest of the season with an anterior cruciate ligament injury.

And now, in a recent interview, the 26-year-old has provided an injury update.

Pereira stated that whilst he had a tough first few days, it is now going well, and he feels better each day.

The Leicester defender also mentioned how he is video calling his physio three or four times a week:

“It’s going well. It was tough in the first few days; I had a lot of pains from the surgery and it was difficult to move, like when going to the toilet or something.

“But each day I feel better, I’ve got more power in my leg and I’m aware of movements that I didn’t have after the surgery which is good because I feel improvements every day.

“Since I’ve had the surgery I’ve been at home. I wake up, come downstairs and do my rehab.

“Most of the things I can do now I can do from home, like three or four times a week I do a video call with my physio to do some exercises for him to see how it is.”  As quoted by Sky Sports News.
