There was more bad news given by John Carver in his news conference today that Siem de Jong has picked up another injury, after suffering a thigh injury in training so he may not play again this season.
Siem de Jong – injured again
The Dutchman has had a scan on his thigh to see how bad it is, and it’s yet another injury picked up by a Newcastle player in training.
This is what John Carver – who says he thinks he’s the best coach in the PL – and that’s started to do the rounds in the national newspapers – has said about other players who are coming back from injury:
“We are waiting to find out on Paul Dummett, who will do some work this afternoon. We are waiting for the results of a scan.
“Papiss trained with us for the first time today and it’s great to have him back with us. It gives everyone a lift.”
So there’s good news about Papiss Cisse and there may be good news about Rolando Aarons who could be on the bench.
Why do Newcastle players pick up so many injuries in training – which is another big reason why we could be relegated this season.
It doesn’t look good about Paul Dummett’s chances, so who plays at center-back on Saturday is anybody’s guess.
Having Siem out is not good and Paul shouldn’t be risked.
