West Bromwich Albion fans have been reacting to news coming out surrounding defender Dara O’Shea.
The Baggies have made a near-perfect start to the season under new boss Valérien Ismaël, remaining undefeated in all of their league games so far as they headed into the international break second in the league table.
22-year-old O’Shea has certainly played his part in getting them this far, playing every minute of every league game and even managing to find the back of the net twice.
However, Baggies fans won’t be seeing him for the foreseeable future as the club recently announced on their website that he “has been ruled out for four to six months after suffering a fractured ankle while on international duty with the Republic of Ireland” and will also require surgery as he sustained ligament damage at the same time.
The news was relayed to fans on Twitter where there were a number of them left quite upset when they saw the news:
“Gutted for you @dara_oshea_ you have really grown and developed into a solid consistent player. Speedy recovery and look forward to your return for the last push for promotion hopefully”
Have you been impressed by Dara O'Shea this season?
YES, HE'S BEEN BRILLIANT
NO, NOT REALLY
A devastating blow for sure, especially when you consider he’s been one of their better players this season, currently sat in the top five for tackles, interceptions, clearances and blocks per game for Ismaël’s men (via WhoScored).
