Newcastle United issue Fabian Schar injury update after Miguel Almiron blow
Eddie Howe's revealed why Fabian Schar was not selected for international duty.
Schar played in last night’s 2-1 Premier League win over Nottingham Forest at the City Ground – despite not being selected for Switzerland’s Euro 2024 qualifiers because of an injury.
And Howe was asked for an update on the 31-year-old – who suffered a concussion in the Carabao Cup final – before the squad set for a training camp in Dubai.
“Fabian’s been carrying lots of different things in the last few weeks,” said United’s head coach. “He’s been carrying a foot problem, and also had concussion, so I think it’s just a chance for him to rest his body – and go again.”
Meanwhile, midfielder Miguel Almiron is facing six weeks on the sidelines with a "bad” thigh injury. Howe said: “Miggy pulled a thigh muscle in training. Unfortunately, it’s quite a bad one. It’s going to be six weeks.”
