The England ace has been out of the side since picking up a hip injury in March, whilst on international duty, and he only returned to the squad for the trip to Manchester City at the weekend – and he is delighted to finally be back. He told Standard Sport: “There has been a lot of difficult moments “Not being able to play and be part of the new stadium and Champions League quarter-finals, those moments are difficult to sit on the outside of.
“But that is football, that is the way it is. I think I have been very lucky so far with the amount of injuries that I have had and the amount of games that I have missed. “Everyone has to go through a period like that and I was just on the outside supporting everyone. I am so happy with the way the season has gone so far. “I am just really happy to be back. It has been a difficult four or five months. Hopefully, I am fit for good now, touch wood, and I can be available to help the team.”
