Rolando Aarons suffers further injury setback

Published Add your comment

Rolando Aarons has suffered yet another injury setback. The Newcastle United winger suffered a hamstring injury at the start of November and had been ruled out of Sunday’s Tyne-Wear derby. He is now expected to be out of action until the New Year.

This is the 19-year-old’s second hamstring injury this season. He was ruled out of action for six weeks in September with a similar injury and Alan Pardew is anxious to make sure it doesn’t happen again.

He told reporters: “I’m putting a lot of pressure on the medical team department that I don’t miss him again.”

Missing important games

Even though the winger will miss important games against Sunderland, Manchester United and Everton, Pardew doesn’t want to rush the winger: “We’re going to have to make sure we get him through and ready to go.

“He’s a young lad. The hamstring issue is so delicate, we’re going to have to make sure we get him across the line for the New Year.”

Aarons could return in the match against Chelsea on 10 January however the winger will be missing the Magpies’ festive period which sees them play four games in nine days starting with Manchester United on Boxing Day.

The 19-year-old is yet to start a game for the Magpies however his direct style and creativity have helped to galvanise their season.

The club were without a win in seven matches but Aarons has managed two goals in five appearances with a goal against Crystal Palace and the opener in Newcastle’s 2-0 win against Manchester City in the League Cup.
