As soon as the impressive Gabriel Obertan went down after 25 minutes of the 1-0 win against Liverpool today, he knew something was wrong with his leg, and it seemed like he has sustained a bad injury to his thigh.
Gabriel Obertan – a bad thigh injury
And sure enough he couldn’t continue, and this is another injury for the Frenchman – after he has been showing of his best form at Newcastle since he signed for us from Manchester United in the summer three years ago for £3M.
And unfortunately it looks like he’s going to be out for a while, as Alan Pardew had this to say about the 25 year-old Frenchman, who again showed unbelievable speed down the right wing before his injury:
“Losing Obertan was real blow because he has been outstanding,” “It looks like he’s got a bad injury so we’re all really disappointed for him.”
Gabby’s career seemed over at Newcastle in the summer after appearing only five times last season – but he has played 9 times for Newcastle this term already, and scored a great goal against Leicester City, to get us our first league win of the season two weeks ago.
We hope that it will not be too long before Gabriel is fit and back in the famous black and white Magpies strip again.
