Fulham striker Bobby Zamora will be out for five months after after breaking an ankle in last weekend’s 2-1 Premier League victory over Wolves, Cottagers manager Mark Hughes said Thursday.
It was initially thought the 29-year-old England forward would be sidelined for three months, but he must now wait until February at the earliest to return to action.
“Bobby’s had his operation,” Hughes said. “He will now be in bed with his leg elevated for two weeks.
“The operation showed ligament damage so we’re probably now looking at five months,” the former Manchester United and Wales forward added.
“We want to help Bobby get back quickly and there are no concerns over his ability to get back to the level he was before he got injured.”
