NUFC loanee suffers “nasty” injury…just moments after leaving fans hugely impressed

Achraf Lazaar has left Sheffield Wednesday fans impressed after playing his first few games for the club – only for Steve Bruce to confirm that he now looks to have picked up a ‘nasty’ hamstring injury.

Based on these comments from Sheffield Wednesday fans following his first game and a half for the club, they will be gutted to hear he’s set for a reported ‘six weeks’ on the sidelines:

It’s fair to say he’s made an immediate impact and left Wednesday fans hugely impressed – although he may be missing until mid April if this hamstring injury is as bad as first feared.

Here’s what Bruce has had to say about the Moroccan after he was forced off in the 36th minute of Tuesday night’s win over Brentford at Hillsborough:

“He hasn’t played for such a long time. I was worried because physically it took that much out of him on Saturday. I took the chance with him. In hindsight, it looks a nasty one.”

I doubt he’ll force his way back into Benitez’s plans – even if he does do brilliantly on loan in Sheffield – however it is a shame for him that he’s set for a spell on the sidelines just as he’s starting to get his first run in a side following his nightmare spell at Newcastle.

Fellow NUFC loanee Rolando Aarons is also impressing with the Owls, with him bagging two assists in their 3-1 win over Swansea over the weekend – also helping them in a 2-0 victory over Brentford just a few days ago to help consolidate his spot in Bruce’s starting 11.

  1. For some reason only known the himself, Rafa doesn’t trust him, but looked a player to me from the moment he arrived…
