Simon Kjaer is working hard to recover from the knee injury he sustained in the game between Milan and Genoa last year. Fortunately, the recovery process is going well and he’s on track.
It was quite a serious injury for the experienced centre-back as he was forced to surgery to reconstruct the anterior cruciate ligament and reinsert the medial collateral ligament in his left knee. And at his age (he turns 33 today), it’s not exactly an easier process.
Speaking to the Danish outlet Ekstra Bladet, Kjaer shared an update on the recovery and it’s indeed reassuring news for Milan. Soon, he will be able to work fully on the pitch but he’s not quite there just yet.
“I’m where I need to be with my knee. Rehabilitation is going well. I’m very happy and positive about the progress. I improve it all the time and I’m back on the grass at Milanello and it’s a good feeling. I will soon enter the phase where the knee will let me do everything, and then I can really improve physically,” he began.
Kjaer is optimistic about the process and he promised that he will come back even stronger. Music to the ears of Milan and the fans, seeing as the Dane was a very important player before he got injured.
“I don’t doubt for a second that I will come back even stronger. I work with my whole body, but the knee determines the pace,” he concluded.
