Bristol City: Fans react after heartfelt message from Benik Afobe

Bristol City fans have responded in droves to an emotional message from Benik Afobe.

The City fans showed appreciation for the attacker after it was announced that he is likely to miss the rest of the season (per the BBC) due to a knee injury.

The 26-year-old joined the Robins on loan from Stoke in the summer and managed to injure his anterior cruciate ligament in a training session this week.

It’s a big miss for Bristol City as the club have gotten off to a flying start in the Championship, currently sitting sixth after gaining 15 points from eight games and have won three of the last four games. Indeed, Afobe has been an important part of that, scoring three goals in the five that he has played.

It is not the first ligament injury the attacker has had, with Afobe previously suffering a torn ACL in 2013 while at Millwall.

The club says his injury will require surgery and rehabilitation which is expected to take the rest of this season.

Fans were understandably upset by the news and offered their love and condolences to the attacker.

Here are some of the responses below…
