SKIPPER BACKS WALTERS RETURN

28 September 2018

It won't be the end for him. He'll play football again says Chambo

Luke Chambers has backed Jon Walters to return to action after his achilles injury.

The 35-year-old Republic of Ireland international has been ruled out for six months after sustaining a partial rupture of his achilles in last week’s draw with Bolton.

He was on loan at Town until January but has now returned to Burnley to undergo his rehab.

“It’s a big blow for us on and off the pitch, missing Jonny,” the Town skipper told the Club website.

“I’m gutted for him and I hope he recovers as quickly as possible.

“He’s a very fit guy, very enthusiastic about the game and I hope he recovers in time for him to carry on playing at a good level.

"The injury won’t be the end for him. He’ll be back playing football.”
