Haris Vuckic has had an operation on his injured hand, and all being well will be able to resume training in about three weeks time.
Haris Vuckic – back training in three weeks
Haris was taken off at the end of the Newcastle 2-1 win against Fulham a week last Sunday, and we’re not sure exactly what it was, but it seems it was a broken hand.
Harris has been in very good form so far this season, and the 19 year-old can play a part in Newcastle’s season, along with other top youngsters currently at the club, such as Sammy Ameobi and Shane Ferguson.
Vuckic had an operation straight after the Fulham game, and he is naturally keen to get back playing again.
This is what Haris Vuckic told the Newcastle press today:
“I had an operation and my hand is now good again.” “If everything goes OK then I hope to be starting training again in three weeks time.”
“I can’t wait to start training and play football. I was really disappointed with what happened. The fans will see me again soon and I just can’t wait to be part of it again.”
“The manager has made it clear that the younger players are going to get their chance.” “That is good for people like myself and Sammy Ameobi.”
“Sammy showed that night what he can do and it’s great that there are a number of young players coming through the system together.”
“I have came through the reserve team with them and we now feel this is a great chance to make an impact.”
With his two appearances so far this season, the Slovenian now has 9 total appearances for the Newcastle first team and only turned 19 two weeks ago.
It would appear that Haris could have a big future in the game, and we’d love to see him come through this season and get some regular first team action for the side.
In our poll a couple of weeks ago, which asked the question Can Haris Vuckic Make A First Team Breakthrough This Season?, a full 75% thought the answer was yes, with over 2,100 votes in.
The lad is a big 6’3″ and seemingly still growing, so it was surprising to hear Newcastle manager Alan Pardew say recently that the Slovenian U21 international ( 3 caps) still had to get to grips with the physical nature of the game in England.
We look to Haris Vuckic to come though big time for the Newcastle club in the coming season, and he has every chance of doing just that.
