Maurice Edu has been out of action for club and country for what seems like an eternity, but the Rangers midfielder has targeted a return date.
Having returned to training last week, Edu is eyeing to make his comeback on Jan. 3, when Rangers play arch-rival Celtic. With no winter break in the Scottish Premier League, Rangers has six league matches in December, but Edu feels his return from a complicated knee injury will have to wait until 2010.
The news of Edu's targeted comeback comes on the same week that potential U.S. national team midfielder Jermaine Jones returned to training for Schalke 04, and injured U.S. national team forward Charlie Davies said he would recover from multiple injuries in time for the World Cup.
Disappointed to hear Edu won't be playing again until 2010? Happy to know he is a step closer? Has this been the best week on the injury recovery front for the U.S. national team?
