Mancini 'worries over Rodwell fitness'

Published Add your comment

Manager Roberto Mancini is hopeful Jack Rodwell will have a successful career at Manchester City despite admitting concern over the midfielder's fitness record.

Rodwell, signed for £12million from Everton in August, has not played since suffering the latest in a series of hamstring injuries on England Under-21 duty in October. The 22-year-old had hoped to return to action before Christmas but suffered a setback and was ruled out until early in the new year.

The highly-rated Rodwell's time at Goodison Park was also blighted by such injuries and his hopes of playing at Euro 2012 or the London Olympics, after making an England debut in 2011, were dashed by them. Mancini said: "He is getting better and we hope we can recover him in two or three weeks."
