Injury Blow: Newcastle's Sven Botman facing lengthy spell on sidelines

Posted : 21 March 2024

Newcastle and the Netherlands face a significant setback with the news that defender Sven Botman may be sidelined for the remainder of the year due to an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury. The 24-year-old sustained the injury during Newcastle's 2-0 FA Cup quarterfinal defeat against Manchester City, effectively ending the club's hopes for silverware this season. Additionally, Botman's absence will extend to the Netherlands' campaign at Euro 2024.


Newcastle confirmed Botman's injury and subsequent need for surgery in a statement, expressing their support for the player's recovery. The scan revealed the extent of the injury to his ACL, projecting a recovery period of six to nine months. This development adds to Newcastle's woes, as injuries to key players have contributed significantly to their disappointing season.


Despite high expectations fueled by investment from the Saudi sovereign wealth fund, Newcastle's season has been marred by setbacks. While they secured a fourth-place finish in the Premier League last season, earning a coveted spot in the Champions League after a two-decade hiatus, their European journey ended prematurely in the group stage. Currently sitting in 10th place in the Premier League, Newcastle's quest for a first major trophy since 1969 remains unfulfilled, with injuries further complicating their aspirations.
