Luke Edwards of the Telegraph is reporting that Florian Lejeune has suffered another ACL knee injury yesterday and is likely to be out for a lengthy period – again.
It probably means he will go back to Rome and be operated on once again by Professor Paolo Mariani – but we’ll not get too far ahead of ourselves.
It’s the other knee this time, but our hearts go out to the Frenchman and hope he can get back to playing again as soon as possible.
Florian Lejeune – badly injured in second half yesterday
He showed tremendous guts and courage last summer and came back within four months to play again.
But the main thing for the 27-year-old is to have a complete recovery.
Understand Lejeune has suffered serious damage to cruciate ligament and faces another lengthy spell on the sidelines. Tough luck on him and completes a miserable day for #NUFC

This is terrible luck for the Frenchman.
