Brentford midfielder Sergi Canos has today posted an update on his return to fitness, after undergoing knee surgery last month.
The Spaniard picked up a knee injury in Brentford’s 1-0 at home to Nottingham Forest earlier in the season. The injury was not thought to be as serious initially but it later discovered that he’d have to undergo surgery, and Canos is not expected back until at least March.
Here’s what he posted on his Instagram story today:
Canos, 22, is in his third full-season at Griffin Park after joining from Norwich City. He’s a product of the Barcelona youth academy and moved over to England with Liverpool in 2015.
A representative for the Spain from U15 to level to U19, Canos enjoyed his best career season at Brentford last year. His first stint at the club was on-loan over the 2015/16 season before joining Norwich on a permanent deal.
He spent only half a season at Norwich before signing for Brentford in January 2017, and Canos has since made over 100 appearances for the Bees, scoring 16 goals.
This season started slightly slower for Canos, as it did for the team on a whole. Canos featured in 11 Championship games without scoring before being ruled out and since doing so, Brentford have managed to turn their season around with five wins from six.

Canos is a fan favourite at Brentford and a quality Championship player. His absence will be a blow for Thomas Frank but the Dane’s proved he’s got the strength in depth this season, and the return of Canos will only better his options.
