Manager On Youngster's Injury
Blackpool manager Neil McDonald described Henry Cameron’s serious knee injury as ‘devastating’ news for all involved.
The winger has been ruled out for the season after rupturing his anterior cruciate ligament on international duty with New Zealand.
Already on the road to recovery, McDonald says the 18-year-old will have all the support from both him and the club.
“It’s devastating for everybody, especially for Henry and his family,” said McDonald. “He’s a young lad who is trying to progress and he’s progressed enough to get an international call-up.
“We’ll patch him up, give him all the love, attention and care that we need to and will get him back stronger when he’s fit and well.”
Set to go under the knife in the near future, McDonald believes Cameron is mentally tough enough to overcome the injury.
“He’ll probably have a bit of a holiday after his operation and then it’s just rehab. It’s about being mentally strong, believing he’ll come back.
“We’ve reassured him that lots of people have had this operation and come back stronger, and I’m sure he’ll be exactly the same,” he added.
