Ipswich winger itching for return

Published Add your comment

Ipswich winger Luciano Civelli is itching to get back into the first team after he took another step forward in his comeback from a serious knee injury.

The Argentinian has been out since picking up the injury in March 2009 but played 75 minutes in the reserves' 3-1 defeat by Colchester in midweek.

He said: "My knee feels fine and it was good for me to play longer this time. The most important thing is the knee is OK, and I'm happy with that but I have to train hard every day to get better."

Civelli added: "It's been frustrating being out for so long but I am closer now.

"I want to get back into the first team but I have to be patient and it will be down to when the gaffer thinks I am ready."
