The Lowdown: Kamara adds to injury woes
It has been a relatively slow start to the season for Villa, with a number of injuries not helping the cause in the Midlands.
Gerrard admitted he was ‘worried’ by the knee injury Kamara picked up against Southampton prior to the international break, and his fears appear to have been realised.
The Latest: Two months out?
French outlet L’Equipe claimed on Thursday that Kamara is set to be sidelined for two months with a right knee problem.
Preece took to Twitter to relay the update, saying:
“A two-month injury, via L’Equipe, with Kamara’s World Cup hopes now appearing over. Aston Villa have flew Kamara to Dubai for further treatment. How’s your luck?”
Villa have since confirmed that Kamara has suffered a knee ligament injury and has begun a rehabilitation programme.
The Verdict: Gutted
Losing Kamara for the next two months is a big blow for both Villa and the player himself, especially with the World Cup around the corner.
The 22-year-old had been an ever-present figure for Villa this season and appeared to be in Didier Deschamps’ plans after being called up to the France squad last week.
However, he looks set to miss all nine of Villa’s fixtures prior to the World Cup and potentially the tournament itself in what would be nightmare news.
