He returned before the end of the campaign only for the pain to flare up again in pre-season.

Jesus said: First day is s*** when you find out but the day after you realise you have to keep going, fighting and then smile.
Because I have a life. God's given me a life, God let me wake up every morning so I have to be grateful. So I'm blessed. I can walk, I can be here, I can smile. So nothing to complain. Just believe in God and keep fighting. At the end of last season I was completely fine, I felt nothing.
