Man City confident of January return for Bojinov

Manchester City striker Valeri Bojinov could be back in action by January, according to the club's fitness coach.

Bojinov ruptured cruciate knee ligaments during the Manchester derby win over United in August.

The Bulgaria international was forced to return to Italy for surgery but is now back at City's Carrington training complex to continue his rehabilitation work.

According to City fitness coach Stefano Marrone, City fans could be in for a very welcome post-Christmas present.

"Players need targets for motivation, so anything around January would be great," Marrone told www.mcfc.co.uk

"That would mean being fully fit for normal training in December and then he would be ready for the Premier League in January.

"We are still at a very early stage of his recovery, so it is difficult to say for certain, but that is our target."
