Newcastle United fans have reacted with frustration after Chris Waugh provided a worrying fitness update for key man Callum Wilson.
As reported in The Athletic, Waugh claimed that the Magpies striker is set to miss the rest of September and may not be ready to feature for the team again until after the October international break.
The article went on to state that the Englishman has a quad muscle injury which now looks likely to keep him out of action for as long as six weeks.
Waugh shared the information on his Twitter feed and it quickly saw a number of United supporters vent their frustration in response.
Here’s what these Newcastle United fans said
“We knew this. And it’ll simply be down to the club’s incompetence that we fail.”
“This is what happens when you have a wafer-thin squad with key players being injury prone. Was always going to happen. But it’s okay we have Gayle and big Joe or maybe try one of the four keepers up top. Shocking and embarrassing.”
