Anichebe weeps over latest injury set back

Sunderland striker Victor Anichebe has revealed
he was reduced to tears after hearing he faces
10 weeks on the sidelines through injury.
The 28-year-old, who had resurrected his career
on Wearside after finding himself without a
club last summer, damaged knee ligaments
during Saturday’s 2-0 Premier League defeat at
West Brom and is unlikely to play again until April.
Anichebe, who has scored three goals for the
club this season, admitted his misfortune had
left him feeling the lowest he has since
suffering a serious knee injury in a challenge
with then Newcastle midfielder Kevin Nolan
back in 2009Writing on his Instagram account, Anichebe
said: “If I was to say I was gutted (it) would
be a complete understatement. This is probably
the worst I’ve felt about getting injured since
that horrendous tackle in 2009!
“I don’t usually cry like that, but this has been
a really hard one to take as I feel so settled
here and know I’m important to the team. And
just as I was getting back to my best and even
better… this happens.
“I know you guys are very frustrated just as I
am, but sometimes these things happen, I don’t
know why. I just have to be as positive as I
can, pray and do the work needed to be back
as quick as possible..I’ve been here before and
came out stronger and I will again.”
Anichebe’s loss comes as a major blow to
manager David Moyes as he attempts to steer
the club out of relegation trouble once again.
However, Anichebe is confident they can get
themselves out of trouble.
He added in a message to the club’s fans: “You
may feel like everything is going against us as
I’m typing this, but I believe and have complete
faith that we will improve and pick up the
results needed to get us out of the position we
find ourselves in.
“Believe me I know it’s difficult, but stay
positive and keep supporting the team. We
really need all of you to succeed!”.
