David Raya has suffered a significant knee injury in Sunday’s 2-1 English Premier League loss to Leicester City (football news). And now, the club has confirmed that the Brentford goalkeeper will miss five months of Premier League play.

The 26-year-old is an important member of the Bees’ squad. He has shone in their first nine games with his shot-stopping and passing abilities.

However, Raya took a knock in the dying minutes of the match against the Foxes. And this injury scare has turned out to be a significant one.

Brentford Goalkeeper Will Miss Five Months of Premier League

Brentford now expect David Raya to miss four to five months of play as their goalkeeper in the Premier League.

Raya has a Posterior Cruciate Ligament injury in his left knee, according to the club website. And while he won’t need surgery, he will be on the sidelines for at least four months.

“David has unfortunately sustained an injury to the Posterior Cruciate Ligament in his left knee,” explained Neil Greig, Brentford’s head of medical.

“The issue will require a prolonged period of time to heal and for David to then regain function and strength around the joint.

“Positively, this type of injury usually heals well without the need for surgery. David has already begun using a brace specifically designed to aid this process.

“We anticipate the recovery period for an injury like this to be somewhere between four and five months, which will enable David to be back to his previous high levels well before the end of the season.”
