Rafik Djebbour has failed substantially to helpr AEK with his return to the team last summer, after the first game of the championship, against Platanias, was injured and was knocked out. The initial evaluation spoke of at least two months absence. The two months passed, but the Algerian striker is not ready yet and as he said:
"I don’t know when I will be back. I continue to work hard; I want to be in good condition. I do not want to get back earlier; I want to fully restore the problem. I hope to be back on the pitch soon, but I do not know when I will return, "said Djebbour. For the game against Iraklis, he said: "We showed in the field that we are still united. We are a good team with ambitions. It certainly was a good answer. "
