Aston Villa striker Wesley happy with progress from knee surgery

Aston Villa striker Wesley Moraes is happy with his progress from knee surgery.

The Brazilian international suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury in the win over Burnley, just minutes after he netted the opener.

Wesley is back with his family in Brazil, as he steps up his rehab, with the hope of returning better than ever.

“I do my physio everyday, two times a day, so now I feel confident and I feel great," he told VillaTV.

“I try to do some passing, but sometimes a get a bit of pain, but now the last two or three weeks I feel great.

“Two times a week we have to speak with the doctor to say to him how its going. I say that it's going good, but I have to concentrate now to come back early and good.

“I have to continue, this is not finished for me, I must continue to do my physio to come back and then continue doing what I have to do."
