Just as it seemed that Jordan Amavi’s injury wasn’t as bad as it first appeared, so the OS have confirmed that the talented left back will be out for the rest of the season.
The hope was that he might have just twisted a ligament, but the update confirms that he has ruptured the Anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.
This is a major blow to the club, as we are limited to who is available to replace him and it would seem Kieran Richardson is the obvious choice, a player who wouldn’t be many fans choice.
You would think that a proper replacement will be top of the list in the January window, which might impact on improvements in other areas, but that’s for the future.
In the meantime, I’m sure you’ll join me in wishing the lad a speedy recovery.
