Last updated : 13 January 2003 By Martyn Elliott

Hugo has been recuperating in Portugal after the operation and is expected to be out for another couple of months.

Sir Bobby played down the significance of the visit, commenting: "Hugo is coming back to Newcastle today for three days before he goes back to Portugal.

"It will give us a chance to have a look at him. We can check him out, see how he is doing and then he can return to Portugal to continue his rehabilitation."
