Rico Henry, a defender for Brentford, is scheduled to have surgery on a significant knee injury, which would most likely force him to miss the duration of the 2023-24 season. Henry will most likely not be able to return to the pitch.
The left-back, who is 26 years old, was forced to leave Brentford’s 1-0 loss to Newcastle in the Premier League on Saturday due to a lingering injury.
Following a struggle for control with Kieran Trippier, Henry went awkwardly to the ground.
The medical director for Brentford, Neil Greig, stated that the left-back will undergo surgery “within the next week or so” and will have “a prolonged period of recovery” ahead of him.
The defender had previously sustained an injury to the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee when competing against Middlesbrough in September 2017. This injury caused him to miss nearly 14 months of action.
Greig continued by saying, “Rico has been through an experience very similar to this one in the past, and he is already intent on utilizing this as an opportunity to become fitter and stronger than he was before.” Throughout the entirety of this process, he may count on our undivided support.
