“It’s simple: I’m eating chicken feet. It’s one of the best natural sources of collagen and has the same flavor as wings. There’s little meat, but a lot of cartilage. What I know is that I’m 32 years old, I’ve been sidelined for two years and now I feel absolutely incredible,” Townsend told the BBC.

Since signing with Luton Town, Townsend has played four matches and 172 minutes for the team, the youngest in the Premier League.

He missed all of last season with a serious knee injury and only returned to play for Everton in May before being released by the club. Before that, his last game had taken place in March 2022.

“I only have a three-month contract. Luton needs to use me straight away and I need to make sure I’m fit. At my best, aged 27 or 28, I found it very difficult to recover after games. Now I feel much more ready to play”, he added.

It’s worth remembering that Townsend also had spells at clubs like Newcastle, Everton and Crystal Palace in the Premier League.
