Steve Clarke: 'Zoltan Gera could return in October'

West Bromwich Albion head coach Steve Clarke reveals that injured midfielder Zoltan Gera could return to action in October.

West Bromwich Albion head coach Steve Clarke has admitted that he has had to slow down Zoltan Gera's enthusiasm in training.

Gera is training again after his recovery from a second serious knee injury, but Clarke has insisted that the 34-year-old is still a month away from a return with the first team.

The 50-year-old told the Birmingham Mail: "Zolly is training, which is fantastic. He's doing well but I'm having to slow him down.

"He's very forward but he needs to relax – he's showing great enthusiasm but he's not match ready.

"It could be the start of October. We want a good four weeks of training before he's ready."

The Hungary captain has made just 18 appearances since his return to The Hawthorns in 2011.
