Eduardo to be back in time

21 May 2009 - 07:32:49

Arsenal are confident that Eduardo Da Silva will be fully fit for the start of the new season following a fresh bout of surgery on the ankle he badly injured over a year ago.

The Croatia international spent 12 months of the sidelines after suffering a horrific dislocation and fracture of his left ankle during a Premier League game against Birmingham City in February 2008.

The 26-year-old made four appearances for the Gunners - scoring three goals - after returning to action in March, but has now been sent for more surgery after reporting a 'minor' problem.

"Eduardo underwent simple revision surgery on his left ankle," read a statement on the club's official website.

"The operation went well and Eduardo will follow a dedicated rehabilitation programme throughout June.

"He is expected to return to full training in pre-season with the rest of the squad."
