Manchester City defender back in training following latest injury blow

Manchester City defender Megan Campbell is understood to have returned to training after recovering from the foot injury which has seen her sidelined for several months according to reports on the club’s official website.

The 27-year-old Republic of Ireland international defender went under the surgeon’s knife in February to address a tendon injury in her right foot and has been through a long period of rehabilitation.

It has been reported that Campbell has recently returned to training and the player could be available for selection once again shortly after the international break.

Campbell joined Manchester City in 2016 but has endured an injury-hit career at The Academy Stadium to date. The player sustained an Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) injury in 2017 which ruled her out of action for months but she enjoyed one of her most successful campaigns to date last season, Campbell making 11 appearances for City in all competitions before again being troubled with injury.

Manchester City boss Gareth Taylor will be looking forward to being able to call upon Campbell’s services again shortly after the international break. City face some big games in the coming weeks including a mouth-watering trip to title rivals Chelsea in the Barclays FA Women’s Super League on 11 October and the completion of their 2019/2020 Vitality Women’s FA Cup involvement. Squad depth will be key for City throughout the season if they are to challenge for silverware on all fronts.
