Chuks chuffed to make comeback

28 November 2016

The long wait is over for Chuks Aneke.

Almost a year since his last appearance for Belgium side Waregem, the attacking midfielder has recovered from a knee injury and played in the past two games for the Dons.

Aneke made his debut in Tuesday’s clash with Chesterfield before, once again, coming on a second-half substitute on Saturday in the 2-1 success over Coventry City.

“Making my debut was a long time coming – it was a fantastic feeling to get back out there,” he told MK Dons PlayerHD.

“I feel like a new player. There haven’t really been any nerves, it’s been more anticipation as I’ve been waiting to play for a long time.

“I just want to get my head down, get as many minutes as I can and make an impact.

“I ended the Chesterfield game with a bit of a bloody nose, which certainly was a welcome back!”

The 25-year-old has worked tirelessly to get himself in a position to step back out on to the field but he was keen to pay tribute to those who have helped him along the way.

He said: “My injury was quite complex – it was a combination of rehabilitation and a waiting game. Since I signed here, the medicial staff have been absolutely brilliant with me, as well as the players who have kept my morale high.”
