Fulham winger Solomon ruled out for ‘next few months’

Fulham winger Manor Solomon says he will miss “the next few months” because of a knee injury.

The winger, who joined Fulham last month, suffered the injury while playing in a behind closed doors friendly having only made his debut for the club in the opening day 2-2 draw with Liverpool.

Prior to the 0-0 draw with Wolves on Saturday, Fulham boss Marco Silva confirmed the 23-year-old would be out for a “long time” with the injury.

And Solomon has taken to Twitter to announce he will now miss “the next few months”.

“The last few days have been difficult for me,” he said.

“I injured my knee in a friendly game which caused me to have surgery and miss the next few months.

“Thank you for your messages and support. I’ll be back stronger and better. See you soon.”

The wide man has joined Fulham on a temporary deal until 2023 from Ukrainian club Shakhtar Donetsk, following a ruling by Fifa which stated that players in Ukraine could suspend their contracts as a result of Russia’s invasion.

Silva is now keen to strengthen out wide, with star man Harry Wilson also currently sidelined with a knee injury.

Both Ivan Caveleiro and Anthony Knockaert, meanwhile, are not in Silva’s plans for this season.
