NGOG CLOSE TO FITNESS
The striker of Bolton Wanderers, David N’Gog, is set to make a comeback in the match between Wanderers and Watford which is going to be played on 15th of September at the Reebok Stadium. The Frenchman hasn’t played even a single match for the Wanderers in this season due to his back injury. He had also been out of the pre season games. But, according to the medical reports, N’Gog is back to 100% fitness now. So, he is supposed to play in the match against Watford.
N’Gog had signed for the Wanderers in August last year after leaving Liverpool (for £2m according to Liverpool news). He had joined the club on a contract of 3 years. He made his debut for the Wanderers against Manchester United in September 2011. United had thrashed the Wanderers by 5-0 in that match. N’Gog had scored his first goal for the Wanderers against Wigan Athletic. He struggled with the fitness problems towards the end of the last season.
On being asked has he regained 100% fitness, N’Gog answered positively. The French striker said that he has not been feeling the pain in his back since the last few days which is a very good sign. He has played in a couple of reserve games and he didn’t have to face any problem in moving. He is disappointed to have missed five matches in the ongoing season. It was frustrating for him to sit out. He was itching to be out there on the field. Hopefully, he would remain fit throughout the season and contribute for his team.
The manager of Bolton Wanderers, Owen Koyle, also looked quite happy with the comeback of N’Gog in the team. As per Koyle, N’Gog is a versatile player and it’s fantastic to get him back in the team. His performance in the reserve matches was good and hopefully, he would do well for the team in the upcoming matches.
