?Hull City may be starting to turn their fortunes around on the pitch, but injuries have not been kind to the Tigers. Young forward Will Keane looks set to sit out the rest of the season due to a serious knee injury.
The Manchester United graduate only managed two months in the Tigers’ side before a knee ligament injury suffered against Southampton ended that run abruptly.
He is also yet to play under Hull City’s new boss Marco Silva, who joined after Keane’s injury.
The former Preston North End and QPR loanee has already suffered several injuries in his short career, but told local news ?Hull Daily Mail that he is still optimistic about the future and his recovery.
“Having gone through it before I know it’s not an easy fix. I know there is a long way to go to get back but I have that experience under my belt” Keane said.
“I know I’ll have some difficult days but I know I’ll have positive days too.”
Keane also noted that he is hoping to step up his recovery over the coming weeks.
“Hopefully I can start doing some strength work in the next couple of weeks. The run up to the end of the season will be important for me to build strength in my knee.
“It is what it is and I’ll remain optimistic about my chances of getting back better than ever.”
The fact that Keane’s recovery is going well will be music to the ears of his fans, who have also had to endure knocks to key players such as Curtis Davies, Michael Dawson, Abel Hernandez and Ryan Mason recently.
