AFC Bournemouth defender Tyrone Mings insists the Cherries squad will support Cherries striker Callum Wilson through his latest devastating injury.

AFC Bournemouth joint top Premier League goalscorer has been ruled out for the remainder of the season with an ACL injury.

The 24 year old former England Under 21’s international, ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in training.

Scans revealed that he will be sidelined for at least six months.

In September 2015, Wilson suffered the same injury to his right knee in a match against Stoke City, which also ruled him out for a little over six months.

Wilson is two weeks removed from his latest surgery and it’s about now that reality sinks in, according to Mings who missed a year with his own knee injury last season.

Mings told the Daily Echo

“It`s never easy to see one of your team-mates go through something like that. I`ve been through it myself so I can empathise with him.

‘We have to pull together as a group and help him.

“I think he will have been alright for the first couple of days. But after the operation reality will have set in a little…’

“…But listen, he`s a strong guy, he`s been through it before, so he knows what to expect. Hopefully that will help him in the initial stages…
