Lots of Derby County fans have flocked to a tweet from The Athletic’s Derby correspondent Ryan Conway, which shared Rams manager Wayne Rooney’s revelation that Krystian Bielik has torn his right ACL for a second time.
The injury came during the East Midlands club’s 1-0 win over Bristol City on 30th January, however, the extent of the injury has only been confirmed more recently.
Can Derby stay up without Bielik?
As explained in an article that Conway has written for The Athletic, Bielik tore his ACL last January too while playing with the Rams’ U23s to build up his fitness.
In this report, the journalist explained that the 23-year-old’s absence will be a significant blow for the relegation-battling side – something fans are well aware of anyway.
After Conway relayed Rooney’s confirmation of Bielik’s injury on Twitter, lots of Derby supporters flocked to his post.
So, how have these Derby County fans been reacting to this news?
This news has crushed many Rams supporters, who are understandably devastated for Bielik.
“Life is so unfair sometimes. I hope he finds the strength to recover a second time. Damn!”
“When you think your night can’t get any worse #dcfcfans”
“This sums up the season!”
“What a night.”
“The news we were all fearing. Gutted for him and as proved tonight will be a massive miss.”
In other news, Conway has dropped a damning Derby takeover claim.
