Injury Update: Harper backs speedy Oba return

Injury Update: Harper backs speedy Oba return

In the wake of Oba Martins` agent completely slating the club`s medical team, Steve Harper has backed the docs and insisted that our Nigerian forward will be back in no time. Harps himself managed to get back into the team just eleven days after being seen by the German surgeon. He said:

'Our medical staff at Newcastle United are second to none. And if they're sending Oba out to Germany to see Dr Muschaweck, it's because she's the best at what she does in the world. She's seen a lot of Newcastle's lads before, and I've been to see her for a similar problem.

And it's safe to say we all benefited from her treatment. Hopefully, now Oba is going over there, it's a good thing. It won't be long before he's back on the pitch and scoring goals for Newcastle. When I went to see her, I was back playing on the 11th day. It's amazing how much time she takes off your recovery.'
