Aston Villa’s Boubacar Kamara suffers knee ligament damage
The 22-year-old is expected to be aout for around two months after sustaining a serious knee injury
The midfielder sustained the damage during the first half of Villa’s encounter with Saints and was replaced by Douglas Luiz shortly before half-time.
As a result of the injury, Kamara was forced to withdraw from the French national squad for this round of UEFA Nations League fixtures and has begun a rehabilitation programme.
The Frenchman now faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines and is a serious doubt for the World Cup in November.
It’s a huge blow for Steven Gerrard, who already lost summer signing Diego Carlos to a ruptured Achilles at the start of the campaign.
