Former Villarreal striker Fernando Cavenaghi has stated that he is hoping to comeback to the River Plate team in the next few months. The 31-year-old striker is currently nursing an injury, which recently forced him to undergo an operation. The striker appears to have done well in his rehabilitation work. It was initially expected that the striker would miss several months of action and would not be back until 2015. The latest results from the injury situation show that Cavenaghi has been making incredible progress and may be back as early as in the end of November.
Reflecting on this positive news, the striker said that he is about to hit the gym in the hope of improving his fitness ahead of his return. Since returning River Plate in 2014, Cavenaghi has been a major influence on the team. He has scored eight goals in 19 appearances, which is an incredible return considering that he only managed eight goals in two seasons at his previous club Pachuca. River Plate are doing well even without his presence, as the top of the table after having played one game less than the rest of the chasing pack. Despite this, they have a three-point advantage.
“I can not hurry because times the doctors say. Course, at first I thought next year, but now we talk about back in November. Would be good to play and keep equipment in this way, because it creates situations and to a front is the best there is. now I’m in the gym and back in three weeks to run, kick a ball and then I’ll see how I am. In many games followed much not playing well it does. We are regular since starting the championship and that’s great. I think all the fans of River we are enjoying it,” said Cavenaghi.
