Queens Park Rangers' Luke Amos suffers another ACL injury

Queens Park Rangers midfielder Luke Amos has been ruled out for the rest of the season following a knee injury according to reports.

Amos who was previously with Tottenham Hotspur had to be escorted off the pitch at the weekend during the match against Bournemouth.

The 23-year-old underwent medical scans to determine the extent of his injury and yet another anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear was confirmed.

This is a massive blow for the midfielder who had the same injury and was on the sidelines for almost during his time at Spurs.

QPR’s Head of Medical Services, Dr Imtiaz Ahmad told the club's officialal website: “Unfortunately the results of the scan are what we feared – Luke has ruptured his ACL in his right knee.

“Luke suffered a similar injury two years ago to his left knee before he joined us, so he is fully aware of what is required to make a successful return.

“Recovery times for these injuries can vary between seven to nine months.

“Unfortunately with that timescale in mind, it is unlikely Luke will feature again this season.”

“When you go through a nine-month injury, you are angry about so many things,” Amos said of his injury.

“I know it’s part of football. It is what it is. I have to make sure I’m working the hardest I’ve ever worked to get back to where I was and then push on again.

“People always say ‘you’ll come back stronger’ and at the start, I thought ‘yes, I will’ but when you get into it, you really understand that sentiment. I’m pushing myself mentally and physically every day.

“It’s literally blood, sweat and tears. I’ve had cries in the gym. Mentally, it’s like a battle daily.”
