I´ll be ready for action this week.
My injury is improving slowly. Recovery´s going very well. I´m back to sprinting on the field and moving the ball around.
I´ll be fully recovered by the Cardiff game and depending on how the week´s training goes I may be able to show up for a few minutes on the second leg against Blackburn for the FA Cup.

It should have been a red card for the tackle by Yanga-Mbiwa on Samir Nasri. A direct red card - we didn’t have any extra help from the referee today.
Nasri has a serious injury with his knee – it was directly a red card. Maybe it’s medial ligaments.
