Whilst his team makes worked on the pitch on Friday morning, Marcin Kaminski was working hard on his impending comeback at the 'VfB Reha-Welt'. Short sprints, balance exercises and a programme on the treadmill are back on the schedule for the 25-year-old, who incurred a double ankle-ligament tear on October 13th in the 18th minute of the clash with 1. FC Köln.
He suffered the injury during a rescue attempt, when, as always, the defender knew no boundaries. Up to that point, the Polish international had been an ever-present in the Wasenelf and hadn’t missed a minute. "Initially it was a hard blow to take, but injuries are part of football," acknowledged Marcin Kaminski on Friday, in an interview with VfB TV some four weeks after the injury occurred. "I’m getting better from day-to-day. That’s the important thing."
Over the coming weeks, Kaminski will close in on his team-mates and return to training on the pitch. "I am looking forward to getting out on the pitch to train with Frank (Haile, Athletic and Rehabilitation Trainer) in the next week. That’s a good feeling."
