Haidara Getting Better And Better Each Day – Fans Gave Me Huge Lift

Massadio Haidara has today thanked all the fans who have given him a huge lift by sending him get well messages on his Twitter account, and that has helped him get through some bad times after he injured his knee in that terrible tackle from McManaman in the Wigan game.

And Massadio is being philosophical about his injury and he says he’s getting better and better each day, although he hasn’t put any date on his return to playing for Newcastle United.

Haidara has had his Twitter account inundated with get well messages, and the young 20 year-old seems to have been overwhelmed by the level of support he has received from his new club and staff, not to mention the supporters.

This is what Massadio told the Evening Chronicle today:

“I’m getting better and better each day.” “The great thing is that I’ve received so much support from people.” “From the staff at Newcastle United, the players and from the supporters here in Newcastle.”

“I have sent me a lot of ‘Get well’ messages on Twitter and social networking. ” “That has given me a huge lift. I think that will help me on my recovery.”

“They say what doesn’t destroy you can make you stronger. That’s true.” “It is going to be difficult for me to start with when I return.” “But I have learned a lot from this.”

“I am learning more about the English game and it is a great education for me.” “I hope to be back sooner rather than later.” “I don’t have any precise date for that.” “In the meantime I will work hard here.

“And of course I will be supporting the team, which I do all the time if I am playing or not.”

With only bruising and soft tissue damage to his knee and thigh, time will heal the wound, and he was initially due back in training in early April, and that’s next week, but we’re sure  that Newcastle will not be rushing him back too much.

Haidara can still play a part in Newcastle’s final 8 league games and also in the Europa League,  and we’re sure he’ll add to the five appearances he has already made in the side, since signing in January.

Here’s his Twitter account if you’d like to send him a (another) message of support.

    He’s lucky he can actually walk at this point in time – very lucky indeed. Hopefully he will be back sooner rather than later, but there is absolutely no reason to rush him back until he is 100% ready both physically AND mentally!!

    He was playing so well I could see him nailing that LB position. Seems a way more natural defender than Santon and was not slow in coming forward and overlapping either.
    He and M’Biwa gives us that serious pace we have needed for a long time at the back.

    Off thread but it seems that the Wigan cosmos – nufc admin side’s set for Monday 20 May, 4pm.

    Pity it couldn’t have been arranged as a pre Prem game, say 20mins each way. That would enable the Wigan lads and fans to enjoy the full SJP experience.

    Meanwhile, United will be without Davide
    Santon for this weekend’s trip to
    Manchester City – while Mathieu Debuchy
    is also a doubt. But Massadio Haidara,
    who was the subject of the a horror tackle
    from Callum McManaman a fortnight ago,
    has been passed fit and should be fit for
    the trip to the Etihad Stadium.
