We’re not sure why the news got out today, that Tim had suffered ligament damage to his left elbow, but the club have only just issued a statement on their web-site saying it is a minor injury to Tim’s elbow, and he is fit to play on Saturday.
Tim Krul – fit to play on Saturday
This is that statement just issued by Newcastle United:
“Tim Krul has been further assessed today by the Club’s medical staff and the Club can confirm that he has nothing more than a very minor elbow injury.”
“The Club will continue to monitor the situation but are confident that he will be available for the game against Leicester City on Saturday.”
This is on the Newcastle web-site so it must be true – and it’s very good news for Newcastle United.
Again we don’t know why the news was widely reported this morning that he had damaged the ligaments in his elbow.
