Kieran Gibbs Out For The Season

Kieran Gibbs Out For The Season

Promising young fullback Kieran Gibbs will miss the rest of the season after undergoing surgery to repair an injury he suffered to his foot back in November.

Gibbs was dropped in at the deep end after Gael Clichy suffered a recurrence of his back injury that saw Gibbs play in some vital matches last season, and the young Englishman had impressed mightily.

The player and club opted for surgery after careful consideration, letting the bone heal by itself could have seen him back early, but also had the risk of carrying the injury over into the 2010/11 season. So the safe route was taken.

We look forward to seeing him back in action next season.

That is so unlucky for him but at least we have Traore as cover (Hope you come back soon Gibbs)

I hope that Kieran makes a full recovery and returns ready for the 2010/11 Season! All the best Kieran!

Bad luck son but it's the right thing do. Hoping to see you fit and raring to go next season. Have a good recovery Kieron!

A real shame for the boy, the timing of the injury was so bad too as he would have got ten or fifteen more games under his belt with Clichy's injury- which would have been great for him and us.

I never realised he had a compound fracture after a shocking tackle in the 93rd minute of a game that was already won. Still we're not crying about it, just wishing the lad better.

Hard luck KG. :)

I'm sure had he not gotten injured he would've been in serious contention for a place in England's world cup squad.
