During his weekly press briefing at De Herdgang on Friday afternoon, PSV coach Huub Stevens gave a positive update on the fitness of striker Jonathan. The Young PSV player is recovering from a severe foot injury, but is stepping up efforts to return to full fitness, according to the PSV coach, who added that the young Brazilian still has a long way to go.
It's a step-by-step process.
The Brazilian, who is a player of the Young PSV squad, is recovering from a severe foot injury. Huub Stevens told media representatives that the forward is stepping up efforts to return to full fitness. On Monday night, Jonathan played fifteen minutes in Young PSV's 2-0 defeat at Vitesse. 'I saw him in the dressing room recently and I thought that he had made a speedy recovery, but in fact he had been selected to undergo an out-of-competition doping test, along with nine other players. We frequently have a chat and I told him that he is doing fine. He knows he has got the skills but it's up to him to prove them. He is recovering well but he still has a long way to go. He will be given playing time, but we can't possibly expect him to put in consistently convincing displays yet. It will take time, as it's a step-by-step process. He featured with Young PSV, even though he was not quite ready for it. As we were a little short on strikers, he played for some fifteen minutes on Monday.'
