Best season cut short

Published Add your comment

Coventry striker Leon Best is set to undergo groin surgery that will prematurely end his season.

The 22-year-old has missed the last two matches with the problem and requires an operation, ruling him out of the Sky Blues' remaining four Championship fixtures.

"Leon's groin injury is quite high up and therefore hard to treat so it looks like he is going to need a little operation to sort that out, and we are keen to get it done as soon as possible," said City manager Chris Coleman.

Best becomes the fifth Coventry player to have their campaign cut short through injury.

Fellow forward Leon McKenzie is recovering from a ruptured Achilles, on-loan winger Jordan Henderson has returned to Sunderland after fracturing a bone in his foot, midfielder David Bell is set to have ankle surgery this week and defender Stephen Wright has a knee problem.
