Brighton and Arsenal fans are saying similar things after Tariq Lamptey season ending injury news
Tariq Lamptey won't feature again this season after undergoing hamstring surgery.
Brighton & Hove Albion's hopes of securing their Premier League status for another season look to have been dealt a real blow.
That’s because full-back Tariq Lamptey has been reportedly ruled out following surgery on a hamstring injury.
A hamstring tear suffered in mid-December saw the 20-year-old's season stopped in its tracks following an impressive start to the campaign for the former Chelsea man.
Of course, Brighton & Hove Albion fans were quick to react to the news on social media – here’s what Seagulls supporters said on Twitter:
@ryanadsett: “First March, now Lamptey, and possibly Webster out till the end of the season. 3 of our starting defenders out... not to mention the fact they’re all vital going forward too. Gutted.”
@blokefromthebn1: “Suspect if we get relegated he's played his last game for us. But that's not going to happen so looking forward to seeing him next season.”
@grantmward14: “Saw that coming. Veltman is a great replacement though. Just lack his burst of pace coming forwards.”
@dylanwhxtbreadx: “Announce Relegation.”
@WalterE66667767: “He'll rip up the Championship.”
@OllieMover: “Hate to say it but I saw this coming months ago I guess this also confirms that he will be our player next season which is 1 positive.”
Indeed, Lamptey was linked with a move to Arsenal before the injury setback, and Gunners fans were also quick to react to the news:
@Umpteenthgooner: “More reason to forget him as genuine Bellerin replacement.”
@rashcist: “He will be in time to play for Arsenal's pre-season games.”
@dennisglenister: “Played his last game then. See you at arsenal next season.”
@Call_Me_Daniels: “Welcome to Arsenal then.”
@AFCThomas_: “Injury prone player so obviously we will look to sign him.”
@ba_L_A: “Gutted his season is over. See you at N5 in the summer Tariq. Should be fit for pre-season.”
@AFC_Ryan__: “People get linked to Arsenal and get injured I swear we're cursed
