  • Southampton blow! Rodriguez suffers fresh injury setback

    first_img Southampton striker Jay Rodriguez 1 Southampton manager Ronald Koeman has revealed striker Jay Rodriguez will be out for at least another six weeks as his rehabilitation from a long-term knee injury continues.The 25-year-old ruptured an anterior cruciate ligament after falling awkwardly against Manchester City in April, with the injury ruling him out of the reckoning for England’s World Cup squad.Rodriguez has yet to make his return more than eight months later and, having gone under the knife again last month to clear out his knee, a comeback does not appear imminent.Before the routine operation Saints had hoped to have last season’s top scorer back for the hectic festive period; now it looks like a return will not come until February.“He had to make a step back in his recovery,” Koeman said.“That was a pity because I remember when we spoke about the squad in the pre-season I said Jay will be like a fantastic signing for December or January and he isn’t.“All these kind of unlucky moments are part of the difficult time that we have.“After a big injury, you don’t have to rush. He needs time and we give him the time to come back, but it’s a pity because he’s a great player.“It’s always difficult now because it’s not good to fix on a special date to come back. He’s now making steps forwards and he needs more time and that’s the most important.“To fix a date makes pressure on the player and the medical staff.”While keen not to say when Rodriguez would make his comeback, Koeman did admit a return before February was unlikely.“I think now, in this situation, he will not be available before the end of January,” he said. “No, no.”last_img read more
