Messages Of Support Inundate Tim Krul Twitter Feed

It´s a cruel blow to Tim Krul that he´s out for the rest of the season with a ruptured Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injury and Tim on his Twitter account revealed how devastated he was with the injury and that he had wanted to participate in Newcastle´s recovery this season.

This is what Tim sent out after he heard the bad news from the scans that the ACL was indeed ruptured.

There have been many messages of support coming for Tim, who has been at Newcastle for over ten years now and has  so far played for us 176 times and has 8 full caps for the Netherlands. That included his heroics in the penalty shoot-out against Costa Rica in the World Cup last summer, when  he was brought on just before extra time ended and brilliantly saved three penalties to get the Netherlands through to the semi-final.
