New Sakho back injury may hit Senegal

sak with ballDiafra Sakho is believed to have again injured his back and will be carefully monitored over the next two or three days by club medics!

The striker left the action against West Bromwich Albion in the 72nd holding his back after just failing to score from a sitting position during a goalmouth melee.

And although it’s too early to say, there’s a possibility that the injury could keep him out of the African Nations Cup Tournament which kicks off in Equatorial Guinea on January 17.

A club source told ClaretandHugh a few minutes ago: “We think the boy has done his back again. It’s a recurring injury now since he was with Senegal last time. It’s become a problem.”

Whether the fresh injury will keep him at home is in the balance but the potential for a club v country battle is very much on the cards.

Club officials remain upset that Sakho has a problem at all and our source said tonight: “They messed him up in the first place, now he has a recurring back injury.

“However, the situation is that they can pick him right up to 17th and  they might want him in Dakar for their medical people to inspect the injury. 

“We’ll know a lot more over the next few days/weeks.”

  1. Not worried about Senegals problem just worried about ours,with Zarate going that just leaves us with Valencia to save our season,you said to me 3 weeks ago we are not going to sign a striker in Jan Hugh I hope you were wrong,much as I have been a Cole fan over the years and I know he will put in 100% I have a hunger to watch better football for the rest of the season as we look safe from the drop now?
