Marco Fabian eyes Eintracht Frankfurt return before FIFA break

Eintracht Frankfurt forwad Marco Fabian
Marco Fabian has been sidelined with back problems.

Mexico international Marco Fabian is eyeing a return to the Eintracht Frankfurt starting XI in their final match before the international break on March 18.

Fabian, 27, has not featured for Frankfurt in 2017 as he has been sidelined with back problems. However, he returned to team training in recent days, and is slowly increasing the workload now as he eyes a return prior to the upcoming international break.

"I am delighted to be back on the pitch, and to be able to help the team," Fabian told reporters on Wednesday, ruling out a return in the away match at the Allianz Arena this weekend.

He said: "The Bayern match would be too soon, but I should make Hamburg."

Without Fabian, Frankfurt have slowly lost sight of the Champions League spots in the Bundesliga. They have lost four league games in a row, and only picked up six points from their last seven matches.

Eintracht still rank sixth, but several teams are now chasing that final Europa League spot.

"I felt powerless because I was reduced to just watching. But I will be back soon," Fabian said. "I think that I can give the team a push in terms of creativity and goal threat."

Keeper Lukas Hradecky backed Fabian's words, when he called the Mexican "one of our most important players, our playmaker."

He said: "Marco sees things others don't see and he sends the important passes which lead to goals. We missed that in a few matches."
