I agree, but I'll go back to my previous point that all he's had are niggly muscle injuries; nothing structural, no bad breaks or severe ligament damage, nothing that is career threatening.
The same as Sturridge.
I mean Gerrard actually had parts of his adductor muscle and heel cut away because of post operative infections, and he kept going for a few years after that, even though he had limited movement compared to before he had the infections.
IMO he's just been a bit unlucky, and the fact it's happened at least a couple of times whilst away with England implies it's a training issue that is managed pretty well by the club, but ignored by the England medical team.
I understand someone can be 30 and still do well. He just wasn't effective last year, but by all means I'd love to see him return to form. I wonder however, if Red Star might be the time to use some of these players who need a game. If some guys like Milner or Mo are only just able to play, maybe not having them play three times in a week would be smart, and the midweek game (all three of them really) should be quite manageable. Or Jürgen could go Hendo, Gini, Milner for all three matches and we take full points. I'm ready for anything.
