J-Rod will come back stronger

Daily Echo: Jay Rodriguez Jay Rodriguez

Mauricio Pochettino has backed Jay Rodriguez to bounce back from injury as a stronger player.

The club’s top scorer is facing at least six months on the sidelines after rupturing his ACL against Manchester City last weekend.

Rodriguez has yet to have surgery with the medical staff working to bring down the swelling before he can go under the knife.

The injury ended Rodriguez’s chances of going to the World Cup with England but Pochettino believes his man will be a better player on his return.

“I am certain he is going to become reinforced out of this situation and become stronger out of this situation,” said the Saints boss.

“No player likes to go through the situation he is about to go through but I am positive that he’s going to return and reinforced and reinvigorated from this difficult situation he is in.”

He added: “It’s clear that we are all very sad for his situation. It is a heavy blow to withstand.

“We know he’s a very strong character and an optimist and he’s doing well mentally.

“He has the full support of the entire squad and the entire football club and what’s important right now is that we know exactly when his surgery is going to happen, he recovers as best as possible and he’s on his road back to fitness as soon as possible.”

"The motivation is always there, because we have to defend to the death our colours, our shirt," he said. "That's what we aim to do in every single game".

The thing about JRod is that he is just such a nice bloke, as well as being a great footballer...
Who I would like to think can come back from this injury mentally and physically stronger and go on to be one of Saints' greats!
Let's hope so anyway...

Having suffered the same injury back in 1995 I know what JRod is facing. My knee was fixed by Prof. David Barrett and it was a complete success and although I am no proffessional footballer I have continued participating in all sports including Karate. Patience is the key for JRod. . He will get back and he can go on to be an even better player but he really is going to have to be rained in. He has the best physios and medical staff on his side. All he has to do is listen, believe and be patient. It will be longer than six months. Christmas is more realistic!! Good luck JR. COYRs!!
