Jimmy Bullard has successfully undergone surgery in the States this week, the world famous knee injury surgeon carried out the operation.
Bullard suffered serious ligament damage following an accidental clash with Scott Parker during the 2-1 victory over Newcastle a couple of games into the season and should be out for the rest of this premiership campaign.
Bullard will stay in the USA for another 7-10 days before returning to London where he will be examined by Fulham's medical team before starting his rehabilitation programme.
Fulham manager Chris Coleman had this to say.....: 'I told him I broke my ankle, I smashed my fibula in 16 different places, and had a compound fracture of my tibia and I ruptured my cruciate and medial ligaments, but still got back to the fringes of the first team.
'But he has to get his head round it and accept that this is going to be his life for the next nine months, set himself a target.
'I was out for two years in total and for 18 months I was by myself in the gym looking out on to the pitch watching the guys training and having a laugh.
'Psychologically that's very draining.'
Editors comment......'Well I for one would like to wish Jimmy a very speedy recovery and to let him know that he has been missed'.
