Ianis Hagi’s curious comments recently asking everyone to calm down over his injury seemed a bit odd to us, with the Romanian playmaker releasing a statement trying to allay fears over his recovery.
Fears which don’t really seem to be there.
Hagi suffered a bad injury at the start of this year, and had major surgery, ruling him out till the end of the year, start of next. But the former Genk attacker said this on the situation:
Given the injury occurred in January, no one ever expected his return much before Christmas, so we’re not too sure what he’s referring to by opinions of ignorance.
He goes on:
Nice to see Rangers get mentioned by name… and Hagi also seems insistent Rangers must qualify from our Champions League group, unless something wildly got lost there in translation, but it seems pretty clear.
We must say his comments maybe have been completely skewed in translation, because no one had any major misunderstandings about his injury aside his father making public claims he was ahead of schedule (which he appears not to be) and even more evidently Rangers aren’t exactly going to qualify from their group.
Very odd indeed.
