Nikos returns to competitive football

Nikos returns to competitive football
And the day finally came for Nikos to return to competitive football. Since his injury in August Nikos was waiting for his return every single moment he spent in the rehabilitation centre back in Greece.

Playing for 90 minutes for the reserve team against Manchester United at Kingston Park and winning the game was probably one of the best ways to return. After the game Nikos was delighted not only for the 2-1 win but also because he felt no pain in his injured knee.

"This has been my first serious injury, I've never been out for more than a couple of weeks in the past and it was a very frustrating time".

"That's why this was such a big game to me, it may not have been at the same level as a Premiership game, but I still felt a little anxious on my way to the ground because I'd been out for such a long time. But the knee is fine and the more games I can play now the more I will benefit."

 

232 Appearances in England (175 for Newcastle United, 18 for Leicester in the Premier League and 39 for Leicester in the Championship). Total League-Cup-Europe appearances 550. National Team appearances 70. Goals total 40.
