Zoltan Gera: Has had knee surgery

West Brom head coach Steve Clarke is optimistic midfielder Zoltan Gera will be back for the start of pre-season training after undergoing surgery on his knee.

Gera suffered ligament damage during the FA Cup clash with QPR at Loftus Road earlier this month.

The Hungary international sustained a similar setback last season, which caused him to miss the second half of the campaign.

Clarke said: "Zoltan has had his operation, it went very well and his rehab starts this week.

"We would expect him to be up and running in time for pre-season training."

Clarke also expects midfielder Youssouf Mulumbu to return from African Nations Cup duty with DR Congo in time to be included in the squad for Sunday's home clash with Tottenham.

Mulumbu is due to fly back in the next couple of days after his country failed to reach the knockout stages of the competition.

Clarke said: "We expect him back on Friday and he will be in contention for Sunday. He's just played the three times for his country so there are no problems there."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
