He sure is a sight for sore eyes.
And his return couldn’t have come at a better time.
I’m talking of course about Samba Sow. The Malian central midfielder hasn’t been able to play every game for us this season, but that doesn’t mean that he hasn’t made a big impact whenever he is available.
You can tell that much by how the fans treat him on social media, but the numbers do a great job of backing them up.
Given that he leads the team in tackles, is third in interceptions, second in being dribbled past and sixth in blocks, it’s fair to say that he’s been a vital part of how the team has set up this season.
Who has been the better player for us this season?
And with the campaign fast approaching ‘crunch time’ (in fact you might argue that we’re already in it), seeing him back in training is something that certainly got fans talking, with many of them concerned with how his injury problems are coming along.

May just be used as a caution but the knee tape doesn’t look promising

Knee problem I see still

What about you? How crucial do you think Sow could be for us in the final weeks of the campaign?
