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."

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
