Tyrone Mings To Undergo Surgery

Aston Villa defender, Tyrone Mings will undergo surgery to treat a knee injury which will keep him out of football for a prolonged period of time.

Tyrone Mings sustained the injury during Villa’s 5-1 loss to Newcastle United on Saturday. Recall that the 30-year-old England international had to be taken off the pitch on a stretcher due to the injury.

Since Aston Villa regained promotion to the Premier League in 2019, Mings has missed just 12 games at the club which goes to show how important the player is to them.

He has played in 155 games in all competitions since he joined the club from Bournemouth in 2018.

This is the second severe injury for a Villa player in a week, following the knee ligament damage that could keep midfielder, Emi Buendia out for up to eight months.

In reaction to the injury woes his side are condemned to face in this early stage of the Premier League campaign, coach Unai Emery said: “This week is very sad for us. With Emiliano Buendia, and now with Tyrone Mings.

“We have to take some days in reflection and then prepare for the game against Everton.”

While the club captain John McGinn added: “Tyrone is a huge player for us. A leader.

“After losing Emi [Buendia], it is a bitter bow and we are keeping our fingers crossed for him.

“It is devastating to see him like that. Pau [Torres] comes in, we’ve spent a lot of money to recruit him, and we have no excuses.”
