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."

ow is the time for Allardyce to finally get a chance at a big club please. He is likely to have a number of great offers for his services this summer, but who will he choose? Will it be Liverpool, Real Madrid, Dortmund or Man City?

thought exactly this when the Match of the Day pundits were peddling this line. Is it really not okay for fans of a club to have some ambition these days then?
