We’ve admitted in the past few months that we’ve been just a little concerned about the long-term injury to Rolando Aarons, and the 19 year-old talented youngster has struggled to come back from those hamstring injuries this season – and he’s been out since November 1st last year.
But interim coach John Carver has some good news today, and he says the winger will be back playing again before the end of the season.
Rolando Aarons – in action at the Etihad in October
There was a Shields Gazette exclusive out earlier in the week, that reported Rolando had another relapse, and that he would be out for the season, but John Carver has denied that’s the case.
This is what John Carver has said on the Newcastle web-site today:
“Rolando will not be out until the end of the season.” “He had a tough physical session a couple of weeks ago and reacted to it. We put him through a scan but found nothing.”
“We are going to refer him to another specialist for a third opinion to see what happens when those results come back.”
“The good news was he hasn’t torn or pulled his hamstring again, so we’re sending him to the specialist to see if there’s anything else that may be wrong.”
It still seems Newcastle are unsure exactly what’s wrong with Rolando, so it’s good that he will be seeing another specialist again.
Maybe the exact problem can be found and fixed, but until the real problem is pinpointed (if there is a problem), then it’s difficult to know whether we will see him again this season.
Some of this could be in Rolando’s head because serious injuries do tend to affect you, when you have been out a while.
Let’s hope we see the 19 year-old before the end of the season, and he continues the sparkling form he showed earlier in the season.
Oh and yes – we keep him at the club this summer.
