Milan star Alessandro Nesta could be set for a return to the pitch in February 2009...
Milan defender Alessandro Nesta has been hampered by several injuries during his career. The latest was a serious back ailment that nearly ended the ex-Lazio man's playing days. However, it appears he could make his return to the pitch in February.
The 32-year-old left for Miami on November 7 to undergo rehibilitation so that he could recover and hopefully return to the field in the near future. The fears that his career were over have been alleviated and he is now planning his return to the Rossoneri despite missing his goal of joining his teammates for their retreat in Dubai.
Nesta has been undergoing four hours of exercise and therapy per day and his physiotherapists believe he could return to the field in February, according to tuttomercatoweb.
Nesta will remain in Miami until mid-Janaury to continue with his rehabilitation, after which he will return to Milan and concentrate on gaining his fitness back.
Despite these postivie reports on Nesta, earlier on Friday, Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani was hesitant to put a timeframe on the player's complete recovery.
