Reggae boy and Bayer Leverkusen star Leon Bailey says he is eager to participate in the upcoming Gold Cup tournament in the United States.

Bailey was injured in May while playing a match for Bayer Leverkusen in the German top flight.

The 23-year-old has been training with his agent and adopted father Craig Butler at the Phoenix Academy and the Captain Horace Burrell Centre of Excellence in recent days.

In a recent interview with Star Sports, he said:


“As it relates to my toe, it is fully healed now. I have resumed peak preparation training with my dad and personal trainer Craig Butler and the Phoenix Academy players.”

He added:

“I want to thank the Jamaica Football Federation for allowing me to utilise their facilities in my preparation and I’m excited about the upcoming fixtures for the Gold Cup and World Cup qualifiers.”

Bailey’s most recent season with Bayer Leverkusen was sensational despite ending prematurely due to injury.

The talented winger scored nine goals and provided eight assists. 

He also found the back of the net five times in eight Europa League games for the German side in their run to the round of 32.
