Kadar Returns To Newcastle With Knee Injury

Newcastle United very promising 18 year-old Hungarian defender Tamas Kadar has returned from the Hungarian squad with a knee injury.


Tamas Kadar – needs minor operation on knee

The young Hungarian was called up to play for the Hungarian senior squad to face European champions Greece, but Tamas did not appear after a knee problem has flared up again.

It turns out the knee injury was a slight one he was nursing through the end of last season, and so young Kadar was a spectator as his side beat Greece 3-2 yesterday.

The promising youngster is now back at Newcastle, and he has already had a scan on his knee and the result is good in that it will take only a minor operation to correct the problem.

Tamas is due to have that surgery in a couple of days so it remains to be seen if he can participate in the Euro 2008 Under-19 Championships set for the Czech Republic, and which start on July 14.

It looks like England will qualify for those finals and young Andrew Carroll is starting for the England side.

We think (and hope) Tamas will be able to play in that tournament as it will give both Newcastle youngsters some excellent experience.

We expect both of them to progress well next season, and be pushing for the first team, they’re that good.

    I’ve seen this lad a few times and I’ve been very, very impressed every time. I think he could play a big part for the toon next season if he starts getting a game.

    Hope he recovers soon.

    Yeah there’s loads of them have Facebook… Ben Tozer, David Edgar, Kazenga Lualua, Tim Krul I think, Ole Soderberg, even Steven Taylor has a Facebook. I considered adding them but thought they might get a bit annoyed, I know I would if I had randoms adding me constantly…

    If injured on national service, then that nation should pay the players wages and medical costs until fit. Again these are policies FIFA should be looking into, instead of crack pot ideas about making goals larger etc!

    I don’t think any of our current young crop will be playing or pushing for a first team performance next year ed, unless there’s an injury crisis at some point.

    don’t get me wrong i’d love to see it happen but can’t see it. don’t think the manager would play them yet, maybe when another seasons gone.

    so i’m wonderoing where all these new young payers are going to be playing then? not enough roo in the reserves for all of them ey?

    I think it is certainly time to loan some of our younger generation out to the lower divisions. Carroll – did not prove his worth with Preston
    Krul – Excellent up in Scotland,
    Lua lua – Needs games.
    Forster – Promising but needs experience of playing

    These 4 at least should go out on loan.

    yep, sounds like a meniscal tear, but he shouldnt be included in the under 19 squad if thats the case, back in light training after two weeks, not competitive games, about a month overall
