Just as he was starting to gain traction as a first team starter, fate has dealt Patrick Roberts a cruel blow.
The former Celtic man had started Girona’s last four games after previously being overlooked for a start.
However, the midfielder has succumbed to an unfortunate injury which will see him out for up to THREE months.
The club reports Paddy has a serious hamstring injury after pulling up in the first half of Girona’s 2-1 win against Alaves. Roberts will now be assessed by the Man City team much like he was last season when he was injured at Celtic.
The player spent two and a half years on loan at Celtic and in that time helped win three league titles for the bhoys as well as being part of the double treble side.
His move to Spain in the summer caught many by surprise and it has taken a while for him to adjust. Roberts played so well in a recent game he was given a standing ovation by the clubs fans and the Spanish media were very high on him.
It looks like he will still stay at Girona for the rest of the season and hope to make an impact come February time.
