We had noticed that 17 year-old Adam Campbell had been missing from the U-21 Reserve team squad recently, and Alan Pardew has cleared up why that’s the case – Adam sustained a knee injury a couple of weeks ago, and the North Shields lad has been ordered to rest the knee.
Adam Campbell - has picked up a knee injury
The news is that the injury is not a serious one (that’s good), but the lad needs rest so the knee can mend properly – Alan Pardew explained why Adam had been missing recently:
“Adam is injured. He hurt his knee two weeks ago.” “It is not serious, he just needs rest.”
Campbell would have been in the Newcastle squad that went to Brugge last week and got a notable 2-2 draw, after being two goals down early in the game.
And Adam is not available for loan this season either, and it seems to us that Alan Pardew thinks this lad is almost ready for prime time, and we could see him make some appearances in the first team as the season progresses.
Certainly the Newcastle manager says he’s been outstanding in training this season – but first things first, and the Newcastle medics will ensure the knee is fully healed before Adam returns to training.
Comments always welcome.
