‘Back for the promotion push’, ‘Just our luck’ – Plenty of Middlesbrough supporters react to major club announcement

Anfernee Dijksteel will miss the rest of the season after suffering an ankle injury, the club have confirmed.

The Middlesbrough defender was on the receiving end of a hefty challenge from Swansea City’s Ryan Manning during Saturday’s 2-1 defeat against Swansea City.

Despite trying to play on at the Liberty Stadium Dijksteel was taken off just minutes later and replaced by Djed Spence.

It’s now emerged that the injury suffered is worse than first feared with the 24-year-old now expected to miss out the rest of the Championship campaign.

Speaking of the injury, Warnock said: “It’s a real blow to lose Anfernee like this.

“I’m disappointed the incident wasn’t picked up by the officials. I think the video clip says it all.”

To lose Dijksteel is a massive blow after an excellent season for Middlesbrough.

After a disappointing first campaign for the Teessiders the defender has since established himself as one of Warnock’s top players and his absence will certainly be felt by supporters based on their reaction on social media.

Here’s what a selection of them had to say.
