Florian Lejeune sends devastating update to NUFC fans after news of serious injury

Florian Lejeune has spoken out following news of his latest injury blow, confirming that he has an anterior cruciate knee ligament injury – with him now set to undergo surgery in the ‘next few days’ ahead of a potential six-month spell out on the sidelines.

The extent of his injury was confirmed by Benitez last night, coming as devastating news for the club after the Frenchman’s outstanding first season in the Premier League with Newcastle United.

Here’s what Lejeune’s had to say (quotes taken from his official Instagram page):

“During my last training session, I left the field due to an injury.

“After further medical examination, the doctor told me I have a anterior cruciate ligament injury.

“I’ll have surgery in the next few days. I’ll do everything I can to get back as quickly as possible on St James’ Park

“I’ll come back stronger to help my teammates and NUFC the best I can..”

A real blow for Rafa, the club and Lejeune himself, who was developing such a strong partnsership with Lascelles at the heart of our defence.

Time for Schar, Clark or any potential replacement to step up, with him almost certain to miss out for the vast majority of the upcoming 2018/19 season.

  1. This is devastating.

    While many fans may be of the opinion that Lascelles is the rock at the heart of our defence I’m personally of the mind that while the likes of Yedlin and Dummett are improving, it wasn’t until Lejeune turned up that we had the makings of an actual defence.

    I just hope Schar is up to the task.
