Left-back making progress after May opCITY can confirm that full-back Martin Olsson underwent shoulder surgery in the week after City’s Play-Off Final victory over Middlesbrough.
The operation – which forced him out of Sweden’s games against Norway and Montenegro in June – took place on Friday, May 29 and was a success.
The 27-year-old is now working towards regaining full fitness, and boss Alex Neil said: “As soon as the season finished, Martin had an operation on his shoulder, which was an ongoing issue for him. There were a couple of games last season where he played through the pain.
“We needed to make sure for Martin’s sake that it stopped being an ongoing issue.
“He’s well into his rehab now, which is going well. The operation was successful; it’s just a case of how quickly we can get him back, we'll know more in the next few weeks as we continue to monitor his progress.
“He'll be back in contention as close to the start of the season as possible.”
