Somma Suffers Another Setback

Davide Somma's career has been put on hold once again after the striker had to start a new rehabilitation period for a long-standing knee problem.

The South Africa international has again been handed over to the Leeds physiotherapy staff after failing to fully recover from knee operations that kept him on the sidelines for more than 18 months.

The striker suffered cruciate knee ligament damage back in July 2011 and only made his return to the United first team in December during a league game against Middlesbrough.

Somma made further appearances after Christmas and made a cameo appearance in their FA Cup win over Tottenham Hotspur, but he was left out of their match with Cardiff City last week by manager Neil Warnock who confirmed that his comeback could have been a bit premature.

"He's just having to slow down a bit. He maybe wanted to come back more quickly than he should have done and he’s doing more rehab at the moment," said that manager.

Somma signed a three year deal with Leeds back in October 2010 and has started just one game during Warnock's year as manager.
