Blackburn Rovers midfielder Robbie Savage has one eye on the FA Cup Final as he steps up his rehabilitation from his broken leg.
Early indications were that Savage would miss the remainder of the season but with good will and a lot of determination Savage is making a good recovery from the broken leg sustained against Watford at Vicarage Road at the end of January and is looking towards May's FA Cup Final at the new Wembley as an ideal place to return. He said:
"When you are injured at this club you work your nuts off to get fit.
"It would be nice if we could get to the FA Cup Final, so I could return for that one.
"The injury was quite bad - I've had a steel rod inserted with three screws and every day it's painful.
"But this injury has made me realise I want to play football for as long as possible."
Anyone that maybe skipped through what Savage said may want to read it again as it sums up the man, he's a pain (others, fans of other clubs, will happily admit this and more!) but his determination to succeed is second to none and you can see how much it means to him.
We would all love to see Rovers run out at the new Wembley on May 19th 2007 and although there is little room for sentiment in this game any longer for all Savage has done for Rovers if anyone deserves to recover to make this showpiece event he does but first we must see of Manchester City on Sunday to move one game closer, and just one more away from this…
