Trabzonspor’s Onur Kivrak to return from injury ahead of schedule
Trabzonspor goalkeeper Onur Kivrak is expected to return to first team football ahead of schedule.
The Turkish international suffered a knee injury against Legia Warsaw in the Europa League at the start of October.
Kivrak spoke to the Turkish newspaper HaberTurk about his recovery.
“I will return earlier than initially expected. I have looked after myself well after surgery,” Kivrak told HaberTurk.
“I have already begun training in the gym to strengthen my knee. I miss playing football and the fans.”
Kivrak was expected to miss the rest of the season with a knee injury but is now expected to return within three months.
Trabzonspor have signed Hakan Arikan on loan from Kayserispor as a sort term replacement.
The 26-year-old goalkeeper made 46 appearances for Trabzonspor last season.
Kivrak has been at Trabzonspor since moving to the Black Sea based side in 2008 from Karsiyaka.
