Zoltan Gera: Recovering well from knee surgery

Zoltan Gera: Recovering well from knee surgery

The 33-year-old underwent surgery in January to repair anterior cruciate ligament damage sustained in the FA Cup match with Queens Park Rangers at Loftus Road.

He was ruled out for the remainder of the 2012-13 season, but Hungary boss Sandor Egervari revealed Gera's rehabilitation is on schedule and he will be ready for the new campaign.

Egevari told Nemzeti Sport: "I am sure he can start pre-season with his club. His rehabilitation is going well and I am very optimistic about his comeback. I plan that he will be with us for our last four World Cup qualifiers [in September and October]."

Gera's agent, Vladan Filipovic, also said the former Fulham player is making good progress in his recovery.

"He is in good shape," Filipovic added. "He spends a lot of time in the gym, as he has been ordered by the doctors to do lots of exercises and he does it scrupulously.

"Everything is going according to plan and the rehabilitation is going well. Zoltan doesn't have any reason to worry."

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
