Injury relief for Ljungberg

16 Apr 2008 - 07:33:53

West Ham United midfielder Freddie Ljungberg is confident of being back in action this weekend, after confirming that he has not suffered another hamstring injury.

The 31-year-old Sweden international has missed the Hammers' last two games, but was relieved to find out that the problem was nerve-related and not a renewed hamstring injury.

He said: "The injury was a little weird, especially since it was quite painful.

"It was quite hard for the medical team to diagnose, but I've been told it was an inflamed nerve. Thankfully I am getting back to full fitness very quickly.

"Luckily, the hamstring is not injured which is great. It is likely I will be fully ready this coming week and available for this weekend game.

"I am lucky it wasn't a hamstring injury and I have been told that the extra work I put in this winter, in the gym, is the reason I am in good shape."

Ljungberg has scored twice in 26 appearances for the Irons this season, having moved to Upton Park from Arsenal last summer.
