Ward out for 2 months following knee op

Ward out for 2 months following knee op

AFC Bournemouth defender Elliott Ward has had a second operation on his injured knee.

Cherries centre back Elliott Ward initially suffered a knee injury in February when he clashed with an advertising board during the defeat with eventual champions Leicester City.

He underwent an operation in May and missed the Cherries pre-season programme, but returned to play in the League Cup match with Exeter City.

Unfortunately he suffered some swelling following the match and he travelled to Rome to be assessed at the Villa Stuart Sport Clinic.

Following that assessment it was decided that he would undergo further surgery in a bid to repair the damaged knee.

The 29 year old is expected to be sidelined for around two months.

AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe told the Daily Echo...

"Elliott Ward has had an operation and we expect him to be out for about two months.

"Taking all things into consideration, we felt that sending him to Italy and getting him the best possible treatment was the right thing to do.

"Hopefully this has got to the bottom of the problem and we can get him back sooner rather than later. He`s got a big part to play for us this year and in the future beyond that.
