We said we should have played Mark Viduka when he was fit, and before he got injured again.
Mark Viduka - injured again – whats’ new?
Mark didn’t make the bench last night for the 2-1 unfortunate defeat by Manchester United, and it turns out the Australian, who spends more time in the injury room at Newcastle than any other player is – guess what?
Injured yet again is the correct answer.
The Newcastle striker has suffered a recurrence of his hamstring injury, and to say he has been badly hampered by groin and hamstring injuries this season, is a huge understatement.
Viduka has made just one Premier League start for the St James’ Park side all season, and of course didn’t even make the bench last night because of this latest setback.
However, Newcastle coach Chris Hughton, is confident the former Middlesbrough and Leeds striker will be back in action soon:
Hughton told the club’s official website today:
“It’s just a minor injury which Mark picked up in training.”
“It kept him out of the Manchester United game but we don’t expect him to be out for too long.”
A hint to Chris – next time Mark is fit, start him, so we can something for the £60K a week he’s being paid by the Newcastle United club.
Mark has no chance whatsoever, of getting an extension to his Newcastle contract in the summer – just thought we’d mention that.
