Emmanuel Riviere is likely to face surgery on his injured knee in the coming weeks as Newcastle United head coach Steve McClaren faces somewhat of a mini striking crisis.
Far too much weight of expectation was put on Cabella’s shoulders last season, a new player from another league who was expected to provide pretty much all the creativity in the team – hopefully he can thrive under the new regime and with better players around him.
Newcastle United head coach Steve McClaren has revealed that striker Emmanuel Riviere may have to undergo surgery in order to solve a knee problem.
McClaren was able to offer positive news of Paul Dummett and Remy Cabella, who are set to return to full training this week.
Many fans commented on the strength of Newcastle’s bench for the fixture against Southampton with the likes of Ayoze Perez, Siem de Jong, Aleksandar Mitrovic, Rolando Aarons, Steven Taylor and Cheick Tiote all included as back-up players on the day.
“I would really highlight that in terms of preparation”.
Young forward Adam Armstrong is now on loan at League One Coventry City until January – and he netted twice during his debut against Wigan Athletic on Saturday – so the Magpies may decide they do need to add greater cover to their forward line.
