Bolton Wanderers midfielder Stuart Holden could soon feature in the national team according to USA manager Jurgen Klinsmann. The midfielder last made a competitive appearance for the national team back in 2010. He suffered a broken leg while playing for the national team and he has been on the road to recovery since then. However, he could be back to full fitness and his best in the next couple of weeks according to Klinsmann. He has also praised the attitude of the player by saying that it is hugely responsible for his comeback.
Klinsmann has revealed that he plans to use Holden in the upcoming CONCACAF Gold Cup. There is a lot of pressure on Klinsmann to deliver results. The team is struggling to make it into the FIFA World Cup 2014. However, the return of Holden could be a massive boost, as he was one of the best players for United States at the FIFA World Cup 2010. He broke his leg after a challenge from Dutch midfielder Nigel de Jong in a friendly match. Even though he recovered pretty quickly from the injury, subsequent challenges and complications have kept him out of the game for this period.
Now, though, he is fully fit and ready to make his comeback according to Klinsmann.
a�?Wea��ve been in touch with Stuart throughout this whole injury period. The last couple of months have given us a lot of positive signals. I spoke to his coach at Bolton, and spoke to his coach at Sheffield Wednesday where he played some very important minutes and games while on loan. Hea��s on his way back. That being said, we want to have him back in our picture. We are going to bring him for the May-June camp, and also for the Gold Cup,a�? said Klinsmann.
