England captain Steven Gerrard is itching to get back on the pitch after surgery
The Liverpool midfielder missed the final two matches of the season after a decision was made to send him for an operation to correct a long-term problem with his left shoulder, but now the 33-year-old is coming to the end of a six-week rehabilitation period and is already looking ahead to pre-season training.
In an interview with LFC TV Gerrard said: "It's going well and feeling strong.
"I'm six weeks down the line with the rehabilitation from surgery.
"I'm not too far away, maybe a couple of weeks away from contact and being back in full training if everything goes well. I'm looking forward to it.
"It's probably the longest break I've had at this time of year - being out of the game for six weeks is enough, I'm itching to get back."
All being well, Gerrard could be back in action for the Three Lions in England’s Teenage Cancer Trust International
with Scotland at Wembley Stadium on Wednesday 14 August.
The Football Association has selected Teenage Cancer Trust as its Official Charity Partner during The FA’s 150th anniversary
and up until the FIFA World Cup in Brazil in June 2014.
