Newcastle United very promising 18 year-old Hungarian defender Tamas Kadar has returned from the Hungarian squad with a knee injury.
Tamas Kadar – needs minor operation on knee
The young Hungarian was called up to play for the Hungarian senior squad to face European champions Greece, but Tamas did not appear after a knee problem has flared up again.
It turns out the knee injury was a slight one he was nursing through the end of last season, and so young Kadar was a spectator as his side beat Greece 3-2 yesterday.
The promising youngster is now back at Newcastle, and he has already had a scan on his knee and the result is good in that it will take only a minor operation to correct the problem.
Tamas is due to have that surgery in a couple of days so it remains to be seen if he can participate in the Euro 2008 Under-19 Championships set for the Czech Republic, and which start on July 14.
It looks like England will qualify for those finals and young Andrew Carroll is starting for the England side.
We think (and hope) Tamas will be able to play in that tournament as it will give both Newcastle youngsters some excellent experience.
We expect both of them to progress well next season, and be pushing for the first team, they’re that good.
