Stoke City forward Tyrese Campbell has issued a message to supporters over his current condition as he continues to recover from his injury setback that has curtailed his season.
Campbell was enjoying another promising campaign for the Potters with the forward having fired in six goals and five assists in 16 Championship appearances (Sofascore), However, the 21-year-old has now not featured in the league since the Potters’ 2-1 defeat at home against Cardiff City back at the start of December. His absence has been a major blow for Michael O’Neill’s side.
The forward has been out of action with a knee injury and it is believed that he is unlikely to make a return until the summer. The Potters have been keen to stress that they are not going to put any timescales on his potential recovery with them not wanting to risk bringing such an influential player back too soon.
The 21-year-old has now taken to his personal Instagram account to share a positive message to supporters over his recovery from that knee injury. He has suggested that he is getting stronger with each passing day and shared an image of what appeared to be him doing some fitness work to get himself back into his best condition.

This is a major positive update from Campbell and the sort of message that Stoke supporters will be keen to see. The 21-year-old is crucial for the Potters and their drop-off in form since his absence has shown just how important he is in terms of making that vital difference in the last third that was helping O’Neill’s side come out on the right side of results.
Stoke have been right not to rush his recovery and they need to take a lot of care with him, as their season is looking to be over in terms of being able to make the play-offs it would make zero sense for them to rush him back too quickly. Campbell will be key to them challenging more closely next term and so they need him back fit and firing for then.
It does seem from this latest update from Campbell that he might well be ready on time in the summer to return to training. That would be brilliant for the Potters and give them real hope for success heading into next season.
