Boubacar Kamara’s injury setback is a ‘devastating’ blow for both the player and Aston Villa, says journalist Dean Jones.
The Lowdown: Kamara suffers injury
Steven Gerrard’s side may have picked up a vital 1-0 win at home to Southampton last Friday but it wasn’t all positive at Villa Park.
Unfortunately, Kamara had to be replaced at half-time after suffering a knee injury, with the 22-year-old now potentially out for an extended period of time.
It is yet another big blow for Villa, who have already lost fellow new summer signing Diego Carlos to a serious achilles issue.
The Latest: Jones bemoans setback
Speaking to Give Me Sport, Jones couldn’t hide his disappointment at Kamara’s injury setback, calling the youngster a ‘big’ factor in the club’s planning for the season:
“It’s devastating and Villa fans must feel cursed that this is happening again.
“Kamara is such a big part of what they were planning this season and at a time when he would just have been settling properly in England, he’s now out.”
The Verdict: Cruel
This injury has come at a terrible time for both Kamara and Villa, with the midfielder finding his feet at his new club and being hailed as the manager’s best midfielder ‘by a mile’ by Dan Rolinson.
Should Villa move for Conor Gallagher?
Hopefully, Kamara’s absence isn’t too lengthy, with the upcoming international break at least meaning he won’t miss any immediate Villa games, but a spell out of the team may still have to be expected.
