“I could even play half an hour now!” he told LFCTV.
“But let’s go step by step. Let’s do the preparation and we will see what will happen on Sunday.

“I got a break of three weeks and I’m now ready and fit again, and full of desire to win many games here and hopefully we can win a couple of trophies.”
