Newcastle United have released an official statement regarding the two injuries suffered by Daryl Janmaat.
The club confirming it was a groin problem that forced the Dutch defender to be substituted shortly after he’d played a part in failing to prevent Southampton’s second goal.
No confirmation from the club as to how Daryl Janmaat picked up his bonus ‘hand injury’, though it has been widely reported that the defender punched the dressing room at some point after being subbed and allegedly broke two fingers.
Some reports say it was during half-time arguments between players, others claiming it was after the final whistle.
A number of media in Holland have claimed Daryl Janmaat has already had an operation on his hand/fingers, though once again the club don’t mention that.
What they do say for sure is that Janmaat misses the Swansea match and so presumably the Manchester City one as well, with it being only three days later.
With only a month left of the season, you have to wonder whether this is the last we will see of Daryl Janmaat this season…and so has he possibly played his last game at the club with previous reports that he is looking to leave in the summer.
Official Newcastle United Statement
‘Newcastle United defender Daryl Janmaat is currently undergoing treatment for a groin injury suffered during Saturday’s game at Southampton.
The 26-year-old full-back has also undergone treatment for a hand injury sustained the same day.
Janmaat will be unavailable for the Magpies’ forthcoming fixture against Swansea at the weekend. He will be reviewed further next week and the Club will provide an update in due course.’
