Good luck to Rolando Aarons on his recovery.

Tuesday teatime has seen the winger confirm that he has had his operation on the ACL injury picked up last Wednesday (16 November) in training.

Rolando Aarons says that the procedure was carried out on Monday and was a success.

The Newcastle player announcing:

“Successful Operation Yesterday Now On The Road To Recovery.”

Arguably his worst yet, the ACL injury was revealed on the player’s 21st birthday…talk about adding insult to injury.

The normal recovery time for such an injury is 8-12 months, meaning next season is the earliest goal for Aarons.

However, it has been 13 months for Tim Krul and only last night (Monday) did he play his very first competitive match, for Ajax reserves.

Last Thursday night brought a personal statement from Rolando Aarons himself.

The Newcastle winger saying that despite this type of injury being hard to deal with both physically and emotionally, he knows that ‘life comes with challenges’ and he will come out of it ‘a stronger person and footballer’.

Rolando Aarons also thanked everybody for their messages of support and says he understands the frustrations of fans with his injuries.

As a parting shot, he declared that he is counting on the next time he plays for Newcastle being when the club is ‘back where we belong’.

Good luck to Rolando in his latest recovery.

Rolando Aarons Thursday 17 November 2016:

“Since making my debut I’ve been unfortunate with injuries, my most recent injury being the worst.

“I’ve had to pick myself up and go again every time and this time will be no different.

“Injuries like this are not only hard to cope with physically but emotionally too.

“Life comes with challenges and knowing myself I’ll come out of this a stronger person and footballer.

“I’d like to thank everyone for the support and well wishes, especially the fans who are frustrated at not being able to see me play much these last few years.

“I have worked my whole life to be able to live my dream as a professional footballer and I’ve come too far to quit.

“God willing next time I step onto St James Park to represent this special club we will back where we belong!
