More bad news on the injury front with Rolando Aarons left on crutches and wearing a protective boot on his right foot.
The latest setback for the Newcastle winger came on Friday when he was injured in a challenge in training.
Aarons will be out for a so far unspecified amount of time, just as he was on the verge of returning to the first team squad.
Turning 20 years of age in two weeks time (16 November), Rolando Aarons is amazingly still to make a Premier League starting eleven for Newcastle.
A combination of injury, inconsistent form and an unwillingness to sign a new contract have seen him only make the bench at best in the league.
Despite being one of the few to impress in pre-season, Rolando Aarons was once again left on the sidelines when the season kicked off.
He then was given a rare start against Northampton in the League Cup and despite being up against League Two opposition he was surprisingly poor and Newcastle’s weakest player on the pitch as United won 4-1, with new French winger Florian Thauvin (whatever happened to him…?) the star man.
Unusual to see a young player pick up so many injuries and sadly he has become a bit of a bizarre sideshow to Newcastle’s shocking start to the season, rather than an exciting young player who could potentially have helped United dig their way out of trouble.
