Lee Cattermole: Hopes to be fully fit by the start of next season

Cattermole went under the knife last month after an injury-plagued campaign, ruling him out for the final part of this term.

He is still on crutches but the surgery was successful and the target is now to be fit for the start of next season, and the midfielder is ready to work hard in his rehabilitation rather than enjoy a relaxing summer.

"It's no golf or summer holidays for me, but I'll look forward to getting back next season," Cattermole said in the Daily Mirror.

"I've got another couple of weeks on the crutches then hopefully I'll be back in full training when the lads come back for pre-season.

"My operation went well and my knee's in good condition. I was getting pain there when I was playing and it wouldn't go away so I decided to get it done."

xcellent! Not sure if he is any good as a manager (never thought about it) but the 'headbutt in the technical area' and what he said to Pelligrini were just brilliant, it was as if he was trying to recreate the end of the Alan Partridge Xmas special when Alan punched a man in a wheelchair and verbally abused Tony Heirs.
