We had thought if Sean Longstaff has damaged his knee ligaments it would be really bad news for the 21-year-old.
And today, talkSPORT are reporting that Sean will be out a full four months with the injury.
He saw a specialist yesterday to review the scans he had taken on his knee earlier in the week and it seems the knee ligaments are damaged.
So if this report is true he will be lucky to be fit when pre-season training starts in early July.
Sean Longstaff – out for four months?
It just shows you how things can change quickly and be so up and down in a football career.
Rafa Benitez will probably answer questions on the injury at his press conference tomorrow but if this report is true it’s the worst-case scenario for the talented youngster.
