Dangerous Tackle From Jonny Evans Leaves Holden Out For Six Months

Bolton midfielder Stuart Holden needs surgery after sustaining a knee-injury in Bolton’s 1-0 defeat at the hands of league leaders Manchester United on Saturday afternoon. Holden had contested in a challenge with United defender Jonny Evans when the injury occurred. Evans had dived in with his studs up and they met the knee of the American – the result was inevitable. Holden was left reeling and Evans saw red, which leaves United’s defence in a real state.

However, Holden had remained optimistic throughout the weekend and upon learning the extent of his injury he took to his twitter account and said:

Thx again 4 all the well wishes, w out my fans I wld be no where. Down 2 London 4 Surgery later today and then road 2 recovery begins.

I can promise you all I will come back stronger and better than before. Have had bad luck in the past and will continue to beat it.

He also went on to say that he had received a phone call from Jonny Evans apologising, which he gladfully accepted.
