Bojinov begins rehab next week after surgery

Bojinov begins rehab next week after surgery

Manchester City striker Valeri Bojinov will begin six months of rehabilitation next week after successful surgery on the Achilles' tendon he damaged ahead of Sunday's season opener against Aston Villa.
The Bulgaria international tore the right tendon during pre-game warmups as he was about to make his first Premier League appearance since injuring a knee ligament last August.
Club doctor Mark Whitaker said the two injuries were not connected.
"He had surgery on Monday afternoon _ the aim is for repair as soon as possible after the injury," Whitaker said. "His rehab will initially involve letting the tendon repair and then a gradual strength program with an anticipated return date in six months."
"Everything went very well at the time of surgery and Valeri is fit and well post-op. He will be back in Carrington (at the training ground) next week to start his rehab program."
