Contrary to what reports might have said Kevin Keegan has revealed that Mark Viduka wont require a summer operation, but he will be undergoing an injection to rectify his Achilles problem: ‘He doesn’t need an operation, he is going to have and injection and we will decide whether it’s before the game against Everton, and he will miss that, or after,’ Keegan explained the media. ‘When I say we will decide, that will be the doctor at the club, myself and Mark in particular. If he wants to play the last game and he is fit enough to do so, then he will have that choice.

‘But it is an injection and he can go away then and by the time he comes back to us, he should be then free of any pain there and ready for pre-season.

‘That’s what he wants to do. Obviously, every player wants a good pre-season because it is the basis of the season, it’s the foundation upon which the season is built for a player.

‘We are just looking ahead, but if Mark came and said, ‘Look, I would like to play at Everton for x, y, z reason’, then it will be after Everton.

‘But I am going to give him the option to miss it because that week may just make a difference to him in the seven or eight weeks before he comes back.’

Do you think that Viduka will feature against Everton or will he get this injection out of the way sooner rather than later?
