We had said a few says ago that groin operations these days can be done with keyhole surgery, so that the player does not have a long recovery time, and Michael Owen even played after 10 days, after having minor surgery on his groin when he was at Newcastle.
Yohan Cabaye – in action for France last summer
And the better news today is that Yohan may need only minor surgery, to help him recover from his groin injury, and maybe he will not be out as much as two months, as had been first feared earlier this week.
But Alan Pardew is not sure how long his french International midfielder will be out of action, as he had this to say today:
“I think Cabaye will get the green light to have a minor operation, not a major one. We don’t know how long he’s going to be out for but we’ve got our fingers crossed.”
It seems that Yohan has had a number of scans on the groin, and the good news is the damage to the groin is not as bad as first thought, and now the hope at the club is that he can make a comeback to the side before the end of the year.
That would be good news because Newcastle have 11 matches, starting tomorrow night at home to Maritimo, before January 2nd rolls around, and there are a lot of points to play for in the Premier League.
This is potentially very good news on Yohan Cabaye, who has appeared 13 times this season with two goals, and in total has made 51 appearances with 7 goals for the Magpies since joining from Lille in the summer of last year, and he has been simply outstanding in the black and white stripes of Newcastle.
