​Bournemouth striker Wilson 'quicker than ever' after injury

Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson has issued a warning to Premier League defenders claiming that he is now quicker than he ever was after returning from injury.

"I think you have to have confidence because, otherwise, fear is going to paralyse you. You are never going to play well if you are scared of getting the injury again.

"After the first knee injury, I didn't really know how to come back from it and didn't know the time frames. I rushed my rehab, took six and a half months to get back and didn't give my body the time it needed.

"This time, I took a step back from focusing on when I was going to return. It was more about putting the effort and time into building myself up stronger again and I have done that.

"Currently, I am beating all my sprint scores and am quicker than I was before, so that's a good sign.

"I feel I have had my fair share of time injured. It's positive now and I'm looking forward to an injury-free career."

"As a striker, I think the main thing is getting into goalscoring positions," he said.

"Just being there shows you are getting opportunities and that is a good sign for me. I am saving the goals for the Premier League!"
