Haidara Injury Update

9 years ago

Newcastle United have released a brief statement on the condition of Massadio Haidara after the Callum McManaman challenge at Wigan on Sunday.

The club have stated that Haidara will undergo a scan today and they will update once they know the result of it.

The incident has provoked much debate and very disappointing to see somebody like Roberto Martinez defending his player at all costs. He is a manager who usually comes over really well and while nothing wrong with sticking up for the character of the player, there is nothing to stop him also accepting that on this occasion the player has had a rush of blood to the head and being reckless.

As for the Wigan Chairman Dave Whelan, we maybe expected no better.

He has added his two pence worth to Radio Five Live;

“Young McManaman went in for the ball and got it as clean as a whistle, then he followed through and they collided.”

“He has not gone over the ball, that’s an accident.”
