Terrible news today as we learn that Hungarian starlet Tamas Kadar faces between four and six months on the sidelines after fracturing his shin bone (tibia) during Wednesday’s Reserve-team 2-1 victory over Sunderland.
Tamas Kadar – out up to 6 months with broken tibia
The 18-year-old challenged Sunderland winger Jordan Henderson in the dying seconds of the 2-1 win last night as he looked to protect our advantage, and we reported earlier this morning.
But Kadar was left in a heap after winning the ball and was stretchered from the field in obvious pain. The Under-21 international was taken to hospital in Sunderland where he spent the night before being transferred to a hospital in Newcastle this morning.
The club’s medical staff have told nufc.co.uk that the fracture is uncomplicated and he is expected to make a full recovery within four to six months.
And coach Richard Money said:
“It’s a blow to the boy and to the first-team squad.”
“He’s been on the bench recently and has made himself part of that squad because he’s been playing very well.”
“It put a downer on what was an otherwise terrific win.”
“We wish him all the best and I know he’s got the character to come back.”
Tamas is one of our best young players, and he’s out now for this season, but we wish him a good recovery, and he can come back strong for next season.
Best of luck Tamas – hang in there.
