AFC Bournemouth attacker Junior Stanislas is likely to miss the start of the Cherries 2018/19 Premier League campaign.
Since AFC Bournemouth’s promotion to the top flight of English football, Junior Stanislas has established himself as one of the clubs most creative players.
This was despite his move to Dean Court coming whilst the club was in the Championship, he had failed to make much of an impact following his free transfer move from Burnley.
But promotion to the Premier League was the making of Junior Stanislas and has since scored 15 goals and claimed 9 assists over the past three seasons, despite often struggling with injuries.
During the 2017/18 Premier League season Junior Stanislas struggled with hamstring and groin problems, before suffering an anterior ligaments injury to his left knee against Watford which required surgery at the end of March.
Junior Stanislas did travel to Spain to be part of the squads pre-season training camp in La Manga, but he is yet to join in full training with his team-mates.
AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe told the Daily Echo…
“Junior will probably miss the majority of pre-season with the rest of the group but he is in good shape and moving in the right direction.
“It is possibly too early to rule him out completely and we want to wait and see how he responds during the remainder of his rehab.
“He is going to miss the bulk of the training – if not all of it – so, naturally, you could say it is going to be difficult for him to start the season.
“The most important thing is that we get him back in really good condition and able to complete the season.
Opta defines a big chance as
“A situation where a player should reasonably be expected to score usually in a one-on-one scenario or from very close range.”
I would be interested in Stanislas if it’s easy to find? He has ice in his veins
