Newcastle’s manager Kevin Keegan has said today that Mark Viduka will not need any surgery his Achilles heel problem.
Mark Viduka – no operation will be necessary
Viduka however could miss our final game of the season away tot Everton. It all seems to be dependent on when Mark has the injection for the problem.
Newcastle’s boss Keegan told the Evening Chronicle today:
â€œMark doesnâ€™t need an operation, but he will have an injection.” â€œWe donâ€™t know if he will have it before the Everton game â€“ which would mean he would miss that â€“ or after.”
â€œThe decision will be made by the doctor, myself and Mark.” â€œItâ€™s up to Mark if he wants to play in the last game.” â€œHe should be fine to join in pre-season, which is what he wants to do, and is the basis of any season.”
â€œIf Mark comes to me and says he wants to play against Everton, he will have the injection after the game.â€
Seems to us Mark should play in the Everton game and then have the injection immediately following the game, unless Kevin wants to give young Andy Carroll his first start for Newcastle.
