Big Sami praised after returning from injury

Bayer Leverkusen’s defender Sami Hyypia has returned to full match fitness after the ankle injury which ruled him out for several weeks. Last Sunday he started against Bayern Munich after attending only three training sessions and the German tabloids are praising the Finn for his quality performance.

In today’s press they write:

“Sami’s performance was as solid as usual, and you couldn’t even note he was injured for such a long time, which is quite something regarding his age. He performed faultlessly today and was excellent in the air. We missed him and his strength and experience in the defence and are now more than glad he’s back.”

I feel SO proud of our Legend. :-)

Sami’s unwanted experience

Yesterday’s match day in the German Bundesliga was truly a crazy one. The small teams drowned the big fishes, goals were falling like clockwise, some stars proved their brilliance (Ruud van Nistelrooy), some proved their overestimation (Michael Ballack).

One of the most dramatic matches was the Bayer 04 Leverkusen’s encounter with Borussia M’Gladbach. Nine goals were scored, from which six for Gladbach. Well, our Sami Hyppia’s team lost with a real blast. I felt sad for him, but at the same time felt proud of our ex-red, as he was captaining the team yesterday, which really suited him. :-9 Unluckily, he couldn’t avoid the defeat, and feel proud of his team by himself.

After the match he commented on it in a short, Finnish style: This was a new experience for me. I don’t want to have it again.” *grins*

Though I really feel gutted for him, this comment made me smirk. It is so typical for him.

Sami, I agree. Y.N.W.A
