Fulham midfielder Sheyi Ojo has broken his silence as he continues his recovery from a dislocated shoulder.
The 20-year-old, who is on loan from Liverpool has been out of action since the Cottagers victory over west London rivals QPR at Loftus Road, and says he's delighted to be back in training after a lengthy recovery process.
Speaking to iFollow Fulham, he said: "It was a great feeling to be back. Obviously I've been looking forward to the moment of getting back to training with the boys so I'm really happy to be back.
"I've been working really hard with the rehab and putting extra work in at home so I feel good and ready to be back in.
"First I had the operation which was a success.
"It was a keyhole surgery so it wasn't a proper one, and then it was just four or five days resting. As soon as I could start doing some stuff I was on the watt bike trying to get some fitness through my legs and I bought a watt bike at home too so I was sort of doing double sessions. To be fair my shoulder has healed pretty quickly so I've been able to recover quicker.
"As soon as I knew I was going to be out for a sustainable amount of time, I knew that for me to be back quicker I had to put the hard work in and I feel like I've been able to do that with the help of the club. It's positive I've managed to come back quicker and now I'm just focused on getting back into the team and getting back to playing."
Ojo went on to describe the moment he knew the extent of his injury, saying: "I knew something wasn't right and I tried to move my shoulder and couldn't so I waved to the bench to say 'someone help'. I told one of the physios to click it back in, but it was way too painful so I had to come off.
"He tried to but it was too painful so we went to the hospital and they did it for me."
