Ryan Nelsen has revealed his relief at finally returning to Premiership action.
Blackburn defender Ryan Nelsen has revealed his relief at finally returning to Premiership action after an absence of some nine months.
Nelsen made his top flight return against Chelsea on Wednesday having made a full recovery from a serious hamstring injury.
The injury - the only one of its kind known in England - initially went undiagnosed but after a lengthy rehabilitation, the influential star is delighted to have made a return to the first team.
"The toughest thing was it wasn't diagnosed at the start and it was really frustrating then," said Nelsen.
"But once they figured out the problem and got the operation done, from then on it was just counting down the days."
