‘Season over’, ‘Why is anyone surprised’ – Many Stoke City fans fear the worst following Harry Souttar development

Published

There is huge concern amongst Stoke City fans today as they are sweating on an injury update regarding colossus centre-back Harry Souttar.

The 22-year-old is one of a few Potters players who are internationals and he is now established in Australia’s team after breaking through into Michael O’Neill’s plans last season at club level.

Australia’s World Cup qualification for 2022 still hangs in the balance and they took part in a crucial game against table-toppers Saudi Arabia in South Korea today, but it ended in disaster for Souttar.

Deep into the second half, the defender went down in a heap and looked in severe pain, and it ended with the Stoke man being stretchered off with the worst being feared.

Socceroos manager Graham Arnold confirmed post-match that Souttar suffered a knee injury but the extent of that problem is not yet known – although the fact he was stretchered from the pitch is never a good sign.

It has come at a terrible time for the tall centre-half as well with the likes of Everton, Tottenham and Aston Villa all recently linked into making a move for the youngster – this could scupper a potential big-money deal this January.

Stoke fans have been reacting to Souttar’s injury and it’s safe to say that it would be a major blow to all concerned if he were to miss a significant period of time.
