A number of West Brom supporters have shared their anger on Twitter after Dara O’Shea’s serious injury was confirmed by the Baggies.
O’Shea started the Republic of Ireland’s World Cup qualifying fixture defeat to Portugal, but limped off after only 36 minutes and has withdrawn from Stephen Kenny’s squad before the draws with Azerbaijan and Serbia.
It was announced on the club’s official Twitter account that O’Shea would miss four to six months after suffering a fractured ankle and requires surgery to rectify the injury before undergoing rehabilitation.
The club reacted almost immediately to the news and quickly brought in Kean Bryan on a free transfer following his release from Sheffield United in the summer.
West Brom fans fuming with injury update
These West Brom fans took to Twitter to give their thoughts after the news of the extent of the injury, with one fan worried such a damaging injury to the ankle will be ‘career changing’.
“The fact this man walked off the pitch despite the injury. Made of steel”
“Gutted for you and us Dara, you have been brilliant so far this season so will be massively missed over the next few months. Wishing you a speedy recovery”
“This will be a big miss been brilliant so far and has improved game by game, he’ll be back even stronger”
“Man. Career changing injury too. All the best in recovery”
“So sad, didn’t deserve anything of this. Had an amazing start to the season as well. Get well soon”
