Krychowiak: Recovery going well

Sevilla midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak says his recovery from a sprained knee ligament is going well and is “100 percent focused” on a swift return.

Krychowiak has not kicked a ball since breaking down with an MCL injury in training at the tail end of January, and he gave Polish outlet Wiadomosci24 an insight into his rehabilitation programme.

“I don’t have the possibility of killing time,” he said.

“With the injury, I’ve spent much more time concentrated on the club.

“I’ve been doing all kinds of exercises, barring football.

“I get up at eight [in the morning] and between nine and 11, I dedicate myself to recovery work, then come my exercises

“When I start running, I do so with an appropriate load so I don’t tighten my muscles, then I try to strengthen the affected muscles.

“Everything revolves around the knee, over the area of pain.

“Then I go to the gym and in the [swimming] pool. My day usually ends around 17:00 [CET].

“Thanks to this work, my knee will strengthen further and I can avoid future relapses.

“Now I’m 100 percent focused on returning as soon as possible.

“Knowing everything I’ve done, I should be well prepared [for my return].”
