Newcastle United have announced via their website that French center-back Florian Lejeune has undergone successful knee surgery to repair a tear of his anterior cruciate ligament.
Florian picked up the injury during training – how unlucky can you get!
It’s not unusual that no timescale for recovery has been given by the club but it will probably be several months before he can return to training.
Let’s hope Florian Lejeune is back soon – doing this
This is what Rafa has said about the situation:
“I was speaking with Florian before and after his operation.”
“The doctor says it has gone well and he seems to be in good spirits.”
“I join everybody at the club in wishing him a speedy recovery.”
Players can return from ACL in maybe as little as six months but more serious injuries can have the player miss the whole season.
We join Rafa in wishing Florian a very speedy recovery – he will be sorely missed in the Newcastle team.
