Australian Football: City handed Berenguer boost

Melbourne City have been handed an injury boost with the news star playmaker Florin Berenguer has recovered from a hamstring injury and will be fit to face Adelaide United.

City are out to win the A-League grand final and having Berenguer back available is a timely boost for boss Patrick Kisnorbo.

Injury issue

Berenguer has been on the sidelines since injuring his hamstring in the clash with Melbourne Victory on 9th April but has made a full recovery and is back available for selection.

City now face Adelaide in a two-legged semi-final with a place in the grand final against either Victory or Western United the prize. And Kisnorbo is delighted to have Berenguer back. Now he just has to decide what role he will play.

"He's fit enough to play," Kisnorbo told reporters. "Obviously a big boost, we haven't had Florin for a while now and it's another midfielder we have amongst us. I don't know if he'll start tomorrow or what type of game time he can have."

Fresh and ready to go

Meanwhile City have enjoyed a nice break ahead of the Adelaide clash that will be played at Coopers Stadium on Wednesday night. And after a hectic season that has already seen them claim the premiers plate, Kisnorbo says it is much needed.

"We haven't had a nine-day break, in god knows for how long. We haven't even had a six-day break for months and months," he added. "It's something we haven't had a lot of so it's good to get that time we needed."
