‘It looks like a dead leg’ – Crystal Palace assistant manager opens up Jordan Ayew’s injury
Assistant Manager Paddy McCarthy of Crystal Palace provided an initial assessment of Jordan Ayew’s injury, which restricted his participation in the recent English Premier League matches over the weekend.
McCarthy addressed Ayew’s injury-forced substitution during the 25th minute of the game in the post-match press conference following Crystal Palace’s 1-3 loss to Aston Villa.
The match saw Crystal Palace without Manager Roy Hodgson on the touchline, as he was sidelined due to illness. McCarthy assumed the lead role on the touchline for the Game Week 5 fixture.
“He’s (Hodgson) feeling better, so we’re all hopeful that he’ll continue to feel better and will be back with us sooner than later” before touching on Ayew’s situation.
“It looks like a dead leg – it’s a little bit early to say. He’ll be assessed tomorrow and see where we are with him on Monday” according to Crystal Palace media.
Ayew was named Palace’s Player of the Month in August after recording three assists in four games in all competitions before losing to Villa.
