The Captain of Palace is finally ready to return to the squad.

Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson has claimed that Luka Milivojevic is ready to return to action.

The Palace midfielder will be ready for Sunday's game against West Brom after a three-match suspension and recovery from the Coronavirus. Milivojevic went through ups and downs and was reaped from the field due to illness after the national matches. Now Hodgson has confirmed that his team midfielder will be ready to return to action.

“He is another who unfortunately went away with Serbia and contracted the virus, but he has been over that for a good period of time,”

Hodgson said.

“Of course it has been the sending off at Wolves which cost us his services but he is now back and really knocking quite loudly on the door for a place in the team.

“I am in a good position at the moment in terms of players who are able to play and want to play and I don’t have the space for them.”

On Wednesday, the British government approved the vaccines of Pfizer and BioNTech and gave the green light to use this vaccine. Hodgson continued: 

“Well, a vaccine is an absolute must. I find it hard to understand people are in some way contesting the vaccine and contesting its value.


“For me vaccines have done enormous good. We owe a great debt to the medical world going right back to smallpox injections at the end of the 1700s. We’ve been keeping people alive with vaccines, fighting off terminal diseases for many, many years.


“I’m very happy that a vaccine has now been found to fight off this terrible disease. The sooner it can be rolled out, the better as far as I’m concerned.


“Hopefully we can get people vaccinated and then that hopefully will lead to us going back to a world and a life in terms of our social life and our economic life that we’ve been missing since March this year.”
