Asked whether he would be playing again soon “That’s down to the manager,” Reo-Coker said. “I don’t know what he’s going to do this week. He hasn’t said anything tactics-wise or team-wise what he’s going to do. We’re just working on basic principles, what he wants to do better as a team.But he hasn’t said anything about what team he’s going to pick or what he’s going to look to do.I’ve experienced a lot in my career so far, You can only control certain elements as a professional football player. All I can do is train well and train to the best of my ability. The rest is down to management to pick the team that they see fit and good enough to win whatever game respectively we’re playing.”
