Lukasz Piszczek targets swift return
Borussia Dortmund defender Lukasz Piszczek is hopeful he will be fit before the winter break.
Poland international Piszczek has not played since the Champions League final in May as he underwent hip surgery in the summer, but he is optimistic that he will be back in action before too long.
“I feel good,” the 28-year-old told Dortmund's official website. “There are days when you don't feel particularly great, but that's normal at this stage of the recovery process.
“I'll definitely be fit for the second half of the season. I want to return before then but, if I don't, I won't be too downhearted.”
