Oxford United midfielder Alex Rodriguez-Gorrin will see a specialist in the next few days after a scan confirmed that he tore his anterior cruciate ligament during the FA Cup tie against Bristol Rovers on Sunday.
Alex, almost ever-present since signing from the U’s from Motherwell two and a half years ago told iFollow:
“It’s not great but I will stay positive and I know I am in good hands. As soon as I did it I heard a click and knew it wasn’t good news. I went for a scan and it revealed a tear and now I just need to let the swelling go down before we see the full extent of the damage.
“I know I will be out for a while but the frustration is not for myself, I will just work hard, follow instructions and stay positive as I always do. The frustration is knowing how well we are doing as a team and a club and wanting to play my part in that. “
Karl Robinson told us:
“It was just one of those unfortunate things and typical of Alex he wanted to try and play on. Our medical team are excellent and we are all grown ups: they told Alex straight what they thought it was after the game and the scan just confirmed it.
“He will be out for a few months but as we know, he is a fantastic pro and we know he will be back as good as ever. Meanwhile we will look after him, keep him involved, and make sure he still feels part of what we are building as a team.”
