Roy Hogdson confirms injury blow to key Crystal Palace star

Crystal Palace winger Jesurun Rak-Sakyi’s absence from the Eagles’ 2-0 win over Burnley has been explained.

This season, the exciting youngster has provided Crystal Palace fans with some excitement, and with the club languishing in mid-table, that excitement was certainly needed in South London.

According to Roy Hodgson, who spoke after the game against Vincent Kompany’s Burnley at Turf Moor, the winger missed the game due to injury.

This is a huge blow for the Eagles because the youngster was just getting his bearings in South London and looked to be a handful for opposing defenders.

After the game, Hodgson spoke to London News Online about Rak Sakyi’s injury problem.

“It’s bad,” Hodgson confirmed. “We don’t know for sure. We’re not talking about a week or two; we’re probably talking about much longer. It’s a crushing blow.

“Just as Eberechi Eze and Michael Olise are nearly back in the fold, we lose another player who we believe is very important for us in our attacking play.”

“We regained two and lost one. I would have preferred to have all three.”

Rak-Sakyi injury a big blow

The young winger has performed admirably in all of his opportunities to impress under Hodgson, but losing a player of his caliber is a crushing blow for the Eagles.

According to London News Online, the injury is a hamstring strain sustained while training with the Eagles; this is not an uncommon occurrence for the Eagles.

During the season, Nathan Ferguson, Odsonne Edouard, Michael Olise, Jefferson Lerma, and Eberechi Eze have all suffered hamstring injuries.
