Marco Silva drops Tom Cairney injury update

    Fulham manager Marco Silva has dropped an update on Tom Cairney’s recovery from injury.

    What’s the latest?

    In recent comments cited by West London Sport, the 44-year-old revealed that the attacking midfielder has been making decent progress in his recovery from a knee injury which has kept the 30-year-old sidelined since December.

    Speaking about the current condition of the Scotland international, the Fulham manager said: “He made some progress. Not big, big progress to be honest, but he’s on the [training] pitch already. We need to be calm to see him 100% fit.”

    Do you think Cairney will be a starter for Fulham upon his return?





    Fans will be buzzing

    Considering the sheer amount of time for which Cairney has been sidelined, he will undoubtedly feel like a new signing for Fulham when he does eventually return to first team action, while seeing the 30-year-old in action at Craven Cottage once again will certainly have fans buzzing.

    Indeed, Cairney proved to be a hugely important part of Fulham’s last promotion-winning campaign, scoring eight goals, providing three assists and creating six big chances over his 39 Championship appearances back in 2019/20, in addition to taking 1.1 shots and making 1.8 key passes per game.

    These returns saw the £27k-per-week man earn an impressive seasonal SofaScore match rating of 7.12, ranking him as the club’s second-best player in the second tier in that campaign.

    Although the player who Silva’s predecessor Scott Parker dubbed an “outstanding” talent looks unlikely to make a return before the next international break, it would appear a case of the sooner Cairney returns for Fulham the better, as the midfielder will undoubtedly strengthen their already healthy-looking promotion credentials even further.
