Fabio da Silva is set to be absent for 6 weeks after being injured in a game against Fulham.
He injured himself while crossing the ball for a David Nugent goal.
This will be a bad news for the defender who has just signed for Middleborough.
At first, the staff thought that it would be a light injury and that the player will be back in the team after a few days but recent medical reports have shown that the player might be missing up to six weeks.
This will be a bad news for the club that was counting on the player to help them improve at the back. Fabio da Silva has some good experience of the Premier League while playing for Manchester United and would have been an asset for the team at the back.
This is a massive blow for da Silva who was hoping to start his career well in the Premier League. He already missed the game against West Brom and was hoping that he could make his start in the next matches.
Fabio da Silva has stated that he will not let himself discouraged as the season is still long. He believes that he will recover quickly and that he will have an important role to play during the remaining part of the season. He said that he will make everything he can in order to recover quickly and that he will be working hard on the training ground in order to recover his fitness after the injury.
He believes that Middleborough has a good chance to stay in the Premier League this season and that he will be doing everything he can to help the team. He said that there is a good spirit in the team at the moment, and this should help the team improve.
