Sheffield United striker, Rhian Brewster, has provided an update on his injury status for the first time since suffering a season ending injury earlier in the season.
Brewster had just started to kick into form before being dealt a cruel blow and essentially being ruled out for the entire campaign. The former Liverpool man is not the only one to be feeling it in terms of bad injuries, with David McGoldrick and Jayden Bogle also out for the season.
However, after undergoing a successful operation a few weeks ago and spending the last period on crutches, Brewster has told SUTV that he is now stepping up his rehab and is back in the gym.
“Yeah it (the operation) went really well. Obviously when I came around – eventually – the surgeon spoke to me and said he thought it went really well. I’m seeing them again soon for the check-up,” Brewster said.
“It went really well. I’m back walking, the last time you probably saw me I was on crutches. But yeah, back walking, stepping it up in the gym. Trying to do some more leg stuff and trying to get the bulk back on my leg. Step by step just by stepping it up in the gym.”
Brewster has had to have his hamstring repaired after pulling up at Peterborough. Prior to the injury, the £23m man had scored three in five starts for the Blades.
Our View: Rhian Brewster To Feel Like A New Signing In The Summer
It must have been so frustrating for Brewster. He’d finally found his feet, was hitting the back of the net, and really enjoying his football and then, bang.
However, this is positive news in regards to his operation. It seems to have gone well and he seems in good spirits as well. The comments in the interview about Bogle and McGoldrick helping him along are also nice to hear.
Hopefully, he can have a straight road to recovery now and get back fit and firing. And whatever division United are in next season, Brewster will feel like a new signing.
