Bojinov news pleases Sven

21 February 2008 10:11
Manchester City boss Sven-Goran Eriksson expects injured striker Valeri Bojinov to be available in the next couple of weeks. The £5.75million summer signing from Fiorentina picked up a cruciate knee ligament injury on his debut in the Manchester derby back in August. The 22-year-old Bulgarian recently marked his comeback for the reserves with a goal and Eriksson believes he will soon be available for first-team action. "Everybody's back in and training, which is good news for us," the Swede told the club's official website. "We have all the players fit now, touch wood, which bodes well for the rest of the season with 12 games to go. "The only one not ready to play as yet is Bojinov, but hopefully in a couple of weeks he'll be available. "Valeri has worked so hard and is very keen to come back. "He's tackling and doing everything in training but he was out for a long time. It will take time before he's in competition for a place in the side. "He's enthusiastic, which is understandable with such a long break, but I hope he'll be available in about two weeks."
