City buoyed by Bojinov return from injury

Manchester City manager Sven-Goran Eriksson is looking forward to the return of forgotten striker Valeri Bojinov. The Bulgarian, signed from Fiorentina in the summer, has not figured since August when he suffered a cruciate ligament injury. However, he has made a good recovery and scored in the reserves' 2-1 defeat to Liverpool last night having come on as a 69th minute substitute. Although the 22-year-old is still some way short of match fitness Eriksson is pleased the end to the player's injury nightmare is close. 'Bojinov looks better and better. He has a long way to go before he is 100% but he played 25 minutes in the reserves against Liverpool, which is good,' said the City boss. 'I wouldn't say he is desperate to play football but almost. He has been out for a long time but has been working hard in the gym with the physios. 'Five or six weeks ago we thought he was on the right way and he played for the reserves and then we had to take him out and put him on more training in the gym and more muscle work. 'It has been very tough for him and that is good (he has returned to action).'
