Some words for the first time from Newcastle United defender Massadio Haidara, after he suffered a knee and thigh injury after that horror tackle from Wigan player McManaman, that Wigan Chairman David Whelan had the cheek to say was as clean as a whistle.
Massadio Haidara in training
Thanks Newcastle fans for their support
And it seems the 20 year-old has been receiving lots of messages of support and condolences from Newcastle fans.
The 20-year-old was immediately taken to hospital after he suffered the injuries on Sunday, and as usual the Tyneside club are taking very good care of him.
Derek LLambias said he wanted to thank the Newcastle fans for all the messages of support sent to Massadio, in the statement he released on Haidara yesterday, in response to the FA statement saying they could do nothing about the tackle, because one official had seen the tackle.
That was a close one, but as usual the FA wriggled out of their responsibilities – as they usually manage to do – it’s just finding the reason why they cannot do anything. 😀
And today the 20 year-old himself said this on his Twitter account – aimed at Newcastle fans:
“I’m getting better, I want to THANK all of you for your messages of support, it really touches me.”
It’s great to hear from Massadio, and he will be getting another scan next week when all the swelling and bruising has subsided, and there’s some hope the injury will not be as bad as first thought.
