Manchester City midfielder who has been instrumental to the success of his team will not be available for selection for the rest of the season after sustaining an injury that will keep him out throughout the remainder of the season.
The Manchester City midfielder Alex Robertson who is on loan at Portsmouth has played an important role in what the League Two club has done this season. He has played 23 matches, scoring one goal and providing four assists.
Unfortunately, his progress has been cut short after he sustained an injury in first-team training that will see him return to Manchester City for further assessment and the next step in his career.
At this moment, it remains unknown whether Manchester City and Portsmouth will agree to cut short Robertson’s loan agreement and allow the medical professionals at the Etihad Stadium to attend to him.
“The tear on the hamstring is worse than we originally thought and it’s unlikely we’ll see him before the end of the season. He’s back at Manchester City getting a second opinion but it’s a real blow, for us and him,” Portsmouth manager John Mousinho said while speaking about the condition of the 20-year-old to BBC Radio Solent.
“We always look at the reasons for what might have gone wrong. On Thursday he was fresh, he felt good, he’d had far fewer minutes over those 10 days (Christmas and New Year) and four games than he’d previously had. It’s a really unfortunate one,” he stated to confirm that Portsmouth will surely miss the Manchester City midfielder.
Also, another City player on loan, Liam Delap, will be out for at least two or three months should he not require surgery injury his knee.
Delap, a prospective striker at the Etihad is on loan at Hull City, however, his season might also be cut short by the knee injury.
