Birmingham City's Martin Taylor can't wait for Eduardo to return to football and hit the back of the net again.

The defender has had death threats since the tackle that broke Eduardo's leg in last Saturday's drawn game at St Andrews and in an interview with The Independent he said. "The injury was terrible. When he gets back to fitness and puts the ball in the net for Arsenal for the first time, we will all feel much better."

"I will be really happy on the day when I see he is back in the Arsenal and Croatia line-ups and scoring goals again."

"I went to see him (Eduardo) on Saturday but, unfortunately, he was still recovering from an operation, so first thing on Sunday morning I went to the hospital and he was really good to see me."
