Former stopper Marton back to health following surgery to remove a tumour from his arm and thanks the Blue Army

The Club are delighted to announce that former ‘keeper Marton Fulop has made a complete recovery, after undergoing surgery to remove a tumour from his arm.

The Hungarian, who left Town in 2011, underwent surgery in the summer to remove  the tumour, with the surgery proving to be a success and the stopper now back to full health.

He has been given the go-ahead by doctors to continue his football career, whilst still undergoing regular check-ups for the next five years, and has received a couple of offers from European sides to train with them.

Marton aims to be back to full match fitness by the end of the year and is eyeing up suitable club in Europe to join.

The former Blue was overwhelmed by the messages of support and well-wishes he received from the Club and the Town supporters and has contacted the Club to say thank you.

“I would like to thank Ipswich Town and the Club’s fans for all of their support and kind messages over the recent months, which has really helped me stay in a positive frame of mind,” Marton told the Club website.  

The Club would like to pass on their best wishes to Marton for the future, as he looks to make a return to football.
