The positive news on Massadio Haidara continues, and it seems that he has only suffered bad bruising of his knee and thigh and some soft tissue damage, but other than that he’s fine, and news today that he could be back playing in early April.
Massadio Haidara – playing again in early April – unbelievable
A statement from the club today read as follows:
“We can confirm that results of the latest scan on Massadio Haidara show that the player has very fortunately escaped any significant bone or ligament damage following the dangerous tackle by Wigan Athletic’s Callum McManaman on Sunday. “
“We are very pleased that the extent of his injury is less severe than first feared and is limited to bruising to the bone and soft tissue damage.” “Depending on the speed of his recovery he should be fit to play again in early April.”
“Massadio will continue to be assessed over the coming days.” “He has been very lucky that he has not suffered more serious injury and this positive diagnosis in no way lessens the club’s views with regard to the severity of the tackle from which it resulted.”
That’s a good statement from the club because the good news doesn’t excuse the terrible tackle by McManaman or the inappropriate comments made by both the Wigan manager and the owner, not to mention the FA – who didn’t do anything about the tackle whatsoever.
As soon as we heard that he not sustained any ligament damage to the knee, we knew it was really good news for the Frenchman, and that he had probably only received some very severe bruising.
And when Massadio early in the week said that God was on his side – he was very close to the truth.
He’s a very lucky boy – but this is great news.
And please sign this petition to get the FA to do their job.
