Swansea City winger Pablo Hernandez says he is confident that he’ll return from injury to face Sunderland at home next Saturday
Swansea City winger Pablo Hernandez says he is confident that he’ll return from injury to face Sunderland at home next Saturday.
The Spaniard has been out of action since the club’s first win of the season at West Brom due to a hamstring injury.
After missing 7 games, the 28 year-old told the Official Site that he’s confident of a return next weekend:
“It was a shame for me because I felt I put in my best performance so far this season against West Brom, and then I pick up a hamstring problem,”
“I`ve had to miss seven games so it has been a frustrating period.
“But now I feel stronger and more confident of being available for the Sunderland game.
“This week has been very important for me and hopefully, with a couple of more days training, the manager will see that I am ready for this game.
“It is an important fixture for us because we need to start picking up points at home.
“But we know Sunderland have a new manager in Gus Poyet, so the players will be looking to do everything to impress him and get a good result.”
Hernandez proved to be a big influence in Swansea’s first win of the season. He created the opener as Ben Davies volleyed home his cross, before he added a goal late on.
Manager Michael Laudrup will also be hoping to have captain Ashley Williams return from injury according to Wales manager Chris Coleman he could face a battle to return for the South Wales derby in Cardiff on November 3rd.
