Haris Vuckic Back In Three Weeks After Hand Surgery

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.

    From the last article

    People who say why not boo JB if ur going to boo AC

    well its simple

    AC got a 5 year contract doube his wages from the season before..,
    weeks later he says his dream has been to have the number 9 shirt and now that he has it he wont let it go…
    a few more weeks he goes for higher wages and then blames the club…

    JB wanted a longer 4 year extension and said he wud take a paycut for it… they offer him 2 years with a pay rise and he said no so then the club said no…
    (then he dug his own grave by complaining on twitter)
    and when they said they were releasing him he said he wanted to stay at nufc atleast this last season, THEN MA said he wasnt getting a contract no matter what and pardew said there is still hope…. well we know who wud win that…
    his agent and JB then decided it was better to go for job saftey meaning a longer contract else where…. why he went to QPR and not west ham ( with nolan ) or stoke (heard they wanted him ) was prob wages but… he was leaving after MA said no contract…

    so we boo the scousers ( JE and AC )
    and boo MA at loftus road 😉

    o JE cause he was a dick about it saying i will stay no i will leave no stay no leave… ALL season

    Why boo Joey Bartoon?
    What he do wrong? Embarassed the club by venting the truth on twitter?
    Rather that than having the big fat ugly freak who owns the toon stood in his XXXXXL duds in the middle of a restaurant. The tw@

    So just what happened to Vukic’s hand? Get stepped on, bitten, broke it smacking someone in the side of the head, or like those mysterious “just happened” like Willo gets?
    If he is in a cast, he would be a danger to other players (including team mates) and chance further damage to it if he fell on it.

    Willos first broken arm didnt just happen the daft sod was surfing and bailed badly, club were very displeased as ur not meant to partake in any overly dangerous or strenuous sports during the season (surfing has a surprisingly high injury rate)
