Maggio hoping to return soon

Napoli wide-man Christian Maggio has insisted that he will return to the side soon after an operation.

The Italy international has been out since the middle of January after going under the knife for an injury to his hand.

But the 31-year-old has claimed that he will be back soon for the latter stages of the League campaign.

“I am feeling fine,” he told Novanta Minuti. “I am hoping to return to the field very soon.

“I am in the process of removing the cast from my hand, and at the moment, it feels good.

“We are playing some good football this season, but there is still a lot of games to go, so hopefully we will finish the season on a positive note.”
