Fulham - Hodgson on Johnson Injury!
After securing the services of Stefano Okaka (on loan) but letting Diomansy Kamara go to Celtic (on loan) things haven`t gone quite according to plan.
The idea was that Okaka would supplement our current strike force of Andrew Johnson, Bobby Zamora and Erik Nevland with possibly David Elm also being included.
Unfortunately, Andrew Johnson could soon be removed from the equation for the remainder of this season.
News has been released that Johnson requires an exploratory operation on a knee injury and there are fears that it could require a lay-off spanning the remainder of this season prompting Roy Hodgson to comment,
"He`s having an explanatory operation on his knee. If the problem is as major as it could possibly be, he`d need an operation that would keep him out for the rest of the season."
"Andy is shattered, he`s devastated."
"One of the reasons we let Diomansy go was because we didn`t think the problem with Andy was anywhere near as grave as it is. Now I might be beginning to regret it."
It just goes to show how complicated life can get at times!
