Sicknote Striker Still Sidelined

Manchester City striker Valeri Bojinov or sicknote to you and I is expected to be sidelined for another several months.

The 22-year-old Bulgarian international joined City from Fiorentina last summer for a cool £6million and since then has only managed to grace the Blues team a paltry three times.

Talking about Bojinov's injury, manager Mark Hughes said...

'He is a little bit behind the group because he hasn't been able to join in the sessions.'

'He has been out for a long, long time and he is suffering from a knock-on from the knee injury.'

'We are aware that he will have setbacks along the way. His body is compensating, and he needs to get more base strength.'


Bojinov badly damaging his knee against Manchester United almost a year ago.

that is unreal we are paying him for 3 games and he is still out for another while we are going to have no strikers for the start of the season
dunne deal
DD, we have only released, Paul Dickov and Emile Empenza so far. Evans looked very Capable when he came on for a few minutes in the faroes and Sturridge is back from the u19 tournament with some goals under his belt. Sparky may just try out someone new tomorrow, just to see how they cope. Again the selection will be interesting, given that we play the second leg next Thursday. any Idea for tomorrows lineup?

Not the best news. I actually looked forward to seeing Bojinov when the signing was announced - came with quite some reputation but if he can't get off of the treatment table it begs the question whether he was worth it!

he's as fit as Robben was for us :-)

Well if he's as skilled as Robben was for us, they might just have a player worth waiting for! He was certainly considered the potential next big thing at Fiorentina for a while... Who knows, maybe he will recover and lead City to take 4th spot in the PL.

About time to offloadif he is not going to be fit to play. The money would be better used on someone who can at least get fit.
