Cape Town - Stoke City forward Bojan Krkic is recovering slowly and took to Twitter to update fans of his progress.
Krkic was finding his best form since arriving at Stoke but then suffered a serious season-ending injury.
The former Barcelona starlet injured his cruciate knee ligaments during Stoke's 4-1 win over Rochdale in January and was forced to undergo surgery shortly afterwards.
The 24-year-old posted a video on social media showing him running on an under-water treadmill as well as receiving treatment from a space-age like machine.
At this stage, Bojan may be first for the start of pre-season training ahead of the 2015/16 season.
