The tragic news was announced this afternoon, that Ryan Taylor has suffered another ACL knee injury, after he hadn’t even returned to the first team, after suffering the same injury last August.
Ryan Taylor – in happier times at Newcastle
It’s a severe blow to Ryan, who will now probably miss most – if not all – of next season.
It seems that on Wednesday afternoon and evening, Ryan has been inundated with messages of support from Newcastle’s fans.
On his twitter account this is what Ryan said on Wednesday night:
“Before and I’ll be back 1 day in the near future. Once again thank you for your support, it means so much to me.”
“Thanks for all the supportive messages everyone. It means a lot. For me it’s just another hurdle to overcome in my career. I’ve been here.”
If you’d like to send Ryan a message of support that will help him through this difficult time – here’s his twitter account.
Ryan has so far played 91 times for Newcastle, since signing on from Wigan in January of 2009, and we are hoping he will be able to add a lot to that total, before he finishes his career at our club.
