Ona day when both Sadio Haidara and Kevin Mbabu were injured in the 2-0 U21 win against Aston Villa at St. James’ Park there is some bad news tonight that Rolando Aarons has picked up a new injury during training late last week.
According to the Chronicle tonight, after almost recovering from a calf injury that has kept him out since September he picked up a foot injury last Friday in a 50-50 tackle with a team-mate in training.
Rolando Aarons – injured again
The serious of the new injury is not fully known, but it could keep him out for several weeks.
Rolando was at the U21 game tonight on crutches and with a protective boot on his right foot and while that may be precautionary – it doesn’t particularly look good.
Rolando had chronic hamstring injuries last season that restricted him to playing just six games with two goals and this season he has only two appearances because of the calf problem – and he’s now going to be out a while longer with the new foot injury.
With these three new injuries on Physioroom.com has Newcastle with 12 injured players and that’s four more than the next team in the list – Arsenal with eight.
It happens every single season that Newcastle have far more injuries than any other PL team – there’s something wrong somewhere – and it’s not just bad luck.
We should hear more from the club – maybe tomorrow – let’s hope it’s not as bad as it appears.
