Newcastle United receive more positive news on injured star, not that bad

Newcastle United fans received disappointing news on Monday as Sweden announced that Alexander Isak would not be able to participate in their October international matches. The Newcastle striker had arrived with an injury report from his Sunday match against West Ham and underwent a medical examination by the Swedish national team’s medical staff. It was determined that Isak would be unavailable for the upcoming European Championship qualifier against Belgium.

After the 2-2 draw against West Ham on Sunday, Newcastle’s manager, Eddie Howe, commented on Isak’s situation, expressing his hopes for Isak’s quick recovery. Sweden’s Head Coach, Janne Anderson, also expressed his disappointment regarding the situation.

However, there is now a more positive outlook on the situation, as it’s reported that Isak’s injury is not believed to be serious. While he won’t be able to play against Belgium, he might still be available for Newcastle’s home match against Crystal Palace on October 21.

Isak hasn’t been ruled out for Newcastle United’s next Premier League fixture, despite his withdrawal from international duty due to a groin issue. The club’s medical team will assess and take care of him during this international break.

Newcastle United fans can hope for a positive outcome, as Isak might get some much-needed rest and treatment during this period, ensuring a swift return to full fitness. Isak had faced a challenging schedule, starting in matches against tough opponents like Man City, Burnley, PSG, and West Ham.

Eddie Howe is also looking forward to having other key players like Anthony Gordon, Botman, Wilson, and Joelinton available for the next Newcastle United game. If Callum Wilson is fit to start against Crystal Palace, the plan could be to aim Alexander Isak at the important match against Dortmund, providing a two-and-a-half-week gap since the West Ham match. Fans can remain hopeful for his quick recovery and return to the pitch.
