Newcastle Midfielder Not Back Until Late February

8 years ago

One of Newcastle United’s forgotten men has now picked up an ankle injury which will keep him out until the end of February.

It doesn’t seem very long ago that Gael Bigirimana was part of the team that almost overturned Benfica’s first leg advantage to put Newcastle into the Europa League semi-final.

That was only April last year but in the intervening months, a once promising player has almost disappeared from view.

Bigirimana has now picked up an ankle injury which according to Alan Pardew will keep him out for around four or five weeks.

The midfielder picked up the injury playing against Tottenham’s under 21s and while he is still young enough to come back strong, it is baffling why he hasn’t been sent out on loan to progress his career.
