Another serious injury for Simon Morgan

Simon Morgan faces yet another long lay-off after damaging cruciate ligaments in his left knee in a training incident last week.

The injury blow came just days after Morgan had returned to full training following the defender’s recovery from a problem in his right knee.

Speaking at the Club’s Motspur Park training facility on Tuesday morning Morgan revealed:

“It’s good news and bad news for me really.

"The good news is that my right knee is now fine. But the bad news is that three days back into training, I had a collision and ruptured the cruciate ligaments in my left knee.

“I’ve been getting my results over the last few days or so, and unfortunately it looks like another long lay-off.

Despite this setback Morgan, who is celebrating his 10th year at Craven Cottage with a series of testimonial events, remains in good spirits and once again stated his determination to make a comeback into the Fulham 1st team before the end of the season:

"The way the lads are playing helps. I can sit back and enjoy the football for a while.Thankfully there are two types of cruciate ligament injuries and this is the lesser of the two. It’s now down to rest and recuperation for me.<

He added: “These things happen, but hopefully I’ll be back by the end of the season when the lads are top of the league and going for the Championship.”
