FC Dallas' surge is getting noticed in the soccer world this week and David Ferreira is front and center in media coverage. The MLS Player of the Week spoke with ESPN's Jeff Carlisle and opened up about the difficulty of his lengthy rehab and his concerns about returning to the pitch. The entire piece is worth a read, but here's an excerpt:
"Definitely there were moments I thought that [I wouldn't return]," Ferreira said. "I was committed during all my therapy sessions, but then I injured myself again and nothing resulted quickly. The support of my family was fundamental and everyone as well as the group encouraged me and strengthened to keep looking forward. Thank God things are going well, and let's hope going forward there are no injuries and I can enjoy many more years of soccer."
