SET BACK RULES LURLING OUT OF GERMAN RECKONING

Anthony Lurling has opted to stay in Rotterdam to work on his recovery, rather than travelling to Feyenoord’s southern Germany training camp with the rest of the squad Saturday. The striker injured a medial ligament in his right knee last Monday in training and is expected to need two weeks to battle back to fitness. Lurling will be kept company by team-mate Jorge Acuña, whose torn ankle ligaments also keep him off the coach for Germany.

‘The knee seemed to be doing well at first,’ said Lurling. ‘I was injured on Monday and by Tuesday I was back on the home trainer. It seemed like good news, but I’ve since suffered a strong reaction after my efforts. There is fluid on the knee that hasn’t been discharged yet. That’s why the decision has been taken not to go to Germany, because I wouldn’t have been ready to do something until Wednesday and we’d be returning to Rotterdam on Friday. It would be pretty senseless, especially as we have sufficient facilities at De Kuip and at Varkenoord for me to work on my recovery.’
