He is back training so that is good to see,” he told Football Insider.

I saw a photo of him leading the team round the training pitch and that is great to see. It really is good to see him back in amongst the boys.

The medical team around him will tell him if he can play or not. It is about four weeks before we start back, he will be ready for the start of the second half.

What a rest he has had so he will be fully recovered. I would not be surprised if we see him on the pitch in Sydney. Ange [Postecoglou] would not have taken him there for the sake of it.
