Knee op sidelines Cousin

Published Add your comment

Hull striker Daniel Cousin will be out of action for at least 10 days after being told he requires minor knee surgery.

Cousin was left out of last weekend's 2-2 draw with West Brom in the Barclays Premier League in the hope that rest would cure the problem, but it has since emerged that the injury is more serious and he will have an operation similar to one that laid off Bernard Mendy for a couple of weeks in November.

Manager Phil Brown said: "Daniel needs a minor operation. It was first assessed on Monday and Daniel was quite adamant that he didn't need one."

He added: "But he has understood that we have top-class medical people at the club and he now needs an operation.

"We may have wasted two or three days but he is going in on Friday.

"I don't know how long he will be out for but we have a history at this football club of getting (players with) meniscus back on the training ground after 10 days."
