Willis Plaza all Set To Return Against Lajong FC.
After a scintillating performance against defending champions, the Red & Gold brigade's celebrations were short lived when the star of the match Wedson Anselme limped off the field with an injury in the 53rd minute of the game. TJM & assistant coach Warren Hackett was in a bit of bother as W.Plaza was also nursing an injury. In this I-League season, both Wedson & Plaza do share 12 goals between them & has played an important role in teams performance. Willis Plaza who has picked up an injury during the match against Aizwal FC is all set to return against Lajong FC. According to sources, the MRI report is clean & Plaza is all set to rejoin his teammates in practice from 1st April (Fool's Day).
East Bengal took Wedson and Plaza to check their fitness status at a clinic in Kolkata and Plaza has been declared fit by the doctors. East Bengal Assistant Secretary Dr. Shanti Ranjan Dasgupta spoke to xtratime and said, “Wedson has an injury in his abductor muscle of the groin and a rest of 7-10 days should be enough for him to get fit. He might be out for the next game but not for too long.” The East Bengal official added, “Plaza is fit now and can start full training from tomorrow.”
