Arsenal youngster suffers injury setback and Jamie Carragher highlights Arsenal’s difficult problem.
Arsenal goalkeeper loanne Karl Hein has suffered a setback in his development away from north London and is set to miss the rest of the season after sustaining a freak injury whilst at home.
The Estonian international joined Championship club Reading on loan during the January window and following a string of convincing performances for the Royals, the 19-year-old now faces a spell out on the sidelines after sustaining a freak injury.
Reading interim manager Paul Ince gave an update on the 19-year-old, who was absent for his side’s 4-1 thumping away at Blackpool on Saturday.
“He (Hein) fell in his house and took the ligament off his bone in his thumb, so they’re talking four to six weeks out if he doesn’t need surgery or two months if it does.” Ince said.
