Newcastle United winger Rolando Aarons has told the fans via the club’s official website the truth about his recent injury problems.
On Tuesday, The Guardian reported that the 19-year-old has been ruled out for the rest of the season with a hamstring problem.
However, earlier today, Newcastle head coach John Carver told the club’s official website that it is not the case.
"The good news was he hasn't torn or pulled his hamstring again so we're sending him to the specialist to see if there's anything else that may be wrong,” said Carver.
Aarons himself has now made it clear that he has not been informed by anyone at the club that he will miss the rest of the season.
“I went home - I think it was on Wednesday - I had a nap after training,” the youngster told Newcastle’s official website. “I got loads of text messages saying ‘don’t worry about it, keep your head up, don’t worry, focus on next season’.
“I got puzzled. I don’t know where that has come from. No one has told me (that I am out for the rest of the season), so don’t believe anything unless it comes from me or the club, it is not always the truth.”
Aarons made an explosive start to the 2014-15 campaign and was expected to enjoy a breakthrough season.
However, the talented youngster has been out of action since November due to a series of hamstring problems.
Even if the teenager is able to return to competitive action before the end of the season, he is unlikely to get too much playing time.
However, with the return to full fitness and a strong pre-season, Aarons could become an important player for Newcastle for the 2015-16 campaign.
Newcastle are currently 13th in the Premier League table with 35 points from 32 and are probably safe from relegation.
