Huge blow as star goes off injured against Dortmund- could be sidelined for months

 

Alexander Isak’s injury pulled him off of Newcastle’s Champions League match against Borussia Dortmund, dealing a serious setback to the team.

After a thrilling 4-1 triumph over PSG and a 0-0 draw with AC Milan, the Magpies were seeking to maintain their unblemished return to Europe’s top club competition when they visit the German team at St. James’ Park.

However, after just 15 minutes of the clash, Isak went down with what looked like a leg injury.

After some treatment, he managed to get up again, but was shaking his head while also walking gingerly.

Ultimately, the Swedish forward was unable to continue and was subsequently replaced by Callum Wilson.

After 15 minutes, the forward got up with what looked to be a leg injury.

After the game, Newcastle will be hoping for positive news regarding Isak’s injury, since he is having a fantastic season for Eddie Howe’s team.

The forward has struck 17 goals in 38 appearances for the Magpies since joining last year, with seven goals in only 11 games across all competitions.

Isak signed a £60 million contract to become the club’s record signing from Real Sociedad. He scored twice in his first three games before suffering a major thigh injury.

Due to this, the 24-year-old was unable to play for over four months before returning to full fitness to help the Magpies earn a Champions League berth.

He made 27 appearances last season and scored 10 goals overall, fitting in well alongside Wilson in the attack.
