Christian Eriksen has confirmed that his recovery from injury is ‘going well’ as he closes in on a return to action for Manchester United.
Eriksen hasn’t played since late January because of an ankle injury but it is anticipated that he could return to action at some stage in April.
This week the midfielder provided an update on his situation as he posted on Instagram to show that he is back wearing boots and is working outside.
The next step for the 31-year-old is to continue his rehabilitation outside.
Eriksen told the club’s official website: ‘Yeah, it is going well. I have just started being outside as you saw [on Instagram] with football boots on.

‘And then we take it from there, that is the next step. I have been in the gym for some weeks now and now it is time to do the next rehab session outside.’
Ahead of United’s victory over Fulham last weekend, manager Erik ten Hag said of Eriksen: ‘He won’t be ready for Sunday, but he will be ready in April.
‘He’s about to come back.’
Eriksen has made 31 appearances for United so far during his first season at the club, while he scored two goals and has provided nine assists.

Although he missed out on featuring in the Carabao Cup final win against Newcastle, Eriksen featured earlier in the competition.
In addition, the Denmark international will be aiming to help United secure glory in the Europa League and the FA Cup.
Erik ten Hag’s side are through to the quarter-finals of the Europa League, where they will take on Sevilla.
In addition, they have reached the last four of the FA Cup, with Brighton to be their opponents.
United, who are in third place, will also be determined to finish strongly in the league.
