Still a very good player but far from being that dominating force that he was last season. Wonder if he can get back to that level? Now 2 major hip surgeries in his career, 8½ months passed after the last one and still feeling it.
It's still an ongoing thing. It still tightens up. They [surgeons] tightened up the front of the hip capsule so much that you get some pain and the trainers do a good job of keeping it loose and stretching and keep on top of the strengthening. The hip flexor almost pulls the femoral head forward and gives you a problem.
I broke my leg and ruptured a tendon over a year ago and am just getting back to being able to cut and jump normally playing goal n soccer.
Sometimes it takes a long time to get normal again, even if you are still able to play.
