It takes like 9 months to a year to come back from an ACL tear, depending on severity. But even when you come back, there's the mental side of things and you see even great players take time to really get back to themselves.Schurrs is out for the season with an ACL.
I rate this guy very highly. how bad does that injury effect a CB?
Surely he can be bought in the summer for half the price that teams were being quoted in the summer of 2023.
VVD took time to really be himself again after his tear, so it'd be a risky move, I think.
I actually really rate our CB unit, and I was hoping for Pellegrino to add to our selection headache. It was sad because before he got injured I felt like we were seeing Kalulu slowly pick up form, and then to see Pellegrino break a bone in his foot, it really sucks.
Kalulu and Thiaw are two really strong CB talents. I think CB and CM (like a true central midfielder rather than mezzala) are the two positions that require the most experience, and our CBs, in particular, are really young. I think if Kjaer leaves this summer, we should be looking to add a CB who has a little more experience to complement our young trio of CBs rather than add yet another prospect.
