There was an “exclusive” report a couple of days ago in the Shields Gazette that Rolando has another relapse in his attempt to come back this season from his hamstring injuries, and that meant he was out for the season.

John Carver was interviewed yesterday and he clarified the situation on Rolando by responding to a question that he was possibly being held back because of his contract situation:
“It’s got nothing to do with that. He has had this ongoing issue with his hamstring.” “We thought we had him up to a certain level.”
“He worked extremely hard earlier last week, then there was reaction to it – which you get with an injury like that.”
“We scanned him and there was nothing on the scan which shows it could be something connected in his hip or his back.” “So we will send him to another specialist to eliminate that situation.”
“But the reports about him being out for the rest of the season, I don’t know where that’s come from – I;d like to think he can come back before the end of the season.”
Not sure what his contract situation has to do with keeping him from playing, but it does look like Rolando has had some negative reaction in training.
So the 19 year-old is not officially out for the rest of the season, but with the lad being out almost six months now, and only six weeks left in the season – he may not play again.
