Good news that Florian Lejeune has had successful surgery on his knee by Professor Paolo Mariani in Rome.
Marani was the surgeon who operated on Lejeune in August, and the French center-back was able to be fit to play in a short four months.
But that took a lot of work from the player himself as he went through an arduous rehabilitation.
But the Frenchman is a determined character, and we hope he can come back just as quickly this time around.
He does have his wife and baby daughter with him in Rome and in a couple of days, he will start his rehabilitation.
We wish Florian all the very best – it’s very tough for any footballer to go through two ACL surgeries in a short nine months.
But Florian has the determination and will to be playing again for Newcastle as early as September.
But the main thing is for Lejeune to have a full and complete recovery from his ACL.
He will also appreciate continuing support from the fans over the next four months.
