It’s another terrible injury blow for Newcastle today as it has been confirmed by the club that Tim Krul has suffered ligament damage to his left elbow.
Tim Krul – crocked training with Dutch squad
The 26-year-old Newcastle keeper suffered the injury while he was training with the Dutch squad last Saturday, so once again one of our best players comes back from International duty crocked. 🙁
This is what the club have just announced:
“Newcastle United have received the results of goalkeeper Tim Krul’s scan on Monday. It showed ligament damage to his left elbow and Krul will be assessed further by the Magpies’ medical staff ahead of Saturday’s Barclays Premier League fixture against Leicester City,”
So that means Tim is going to be out for a few weeks and Rob Elliot will have to deputize, and we have to hope nothing happens to Rob, because we don’t have a lot of experienced cover after the Irish International.
Tim was an ever-present for Newcastle this season, and had been showing some very good form lately.
This is even more bad injury news for the club.
