Newcastle United je preko svog oficijalnog site-a potvrdio da će Leon Best odsustvovati sa terena nekoliko nedelja, zbog povrede ligamenata levog kolena. Da podsetimo, Best se povredio na utakmici protiv Aston Villa-e proteklog vikenda.

"Newcastle United can today confirm that Leon Best has sustained medial ligament damage to his left knee.

The striker was forced off in the early stages of Sunday's home victory over Aston Villa, having picked up an injury while trying to get a shot away.

After being assessed by the Club's medical staff, Best underwent a scan on Tuesday and will be out for a number of weeks".
