Florian Lejeune provides injury update from his hospital bed – Good news

Florian Lejeune has confirmed on social media that his operation on his anterior cruciate ligament injury was a ‘success’ – with him now ready to ‘rest and recover’ ahead of his spell on the sidelines.

After an impressive first season in England, the Frenchman played in our opening pre-season game against St Patrick’s Athletic last month – however fears were raised when he was absent from the trip to Hull the following week.

Benitez then confirmed our worst fears, confirming a anterior cruciate knee ligament injury – a notoriously bad injury which will more than likely rule him out for the entire 2018/19 season.

He has now had surgery, however, confirming that it has gone well:

He now faces a long road to recovery, but let’s hope he can come back even stronger now he has been sucessfully operated on.

It’ll take time and there’s no guarantee that he’ll come back the same player, but we’ve got all our fingers crossed for him.

A cruel injury blow for a player who’s not had much luck since arriving in England.
