Tim "Devastated" By Knee Injury

Newcastle United goalkeeper Tim Krul has spoken of his 'devastation' after having his season ended by a serious knee injury.

The Magpies' number one suffered a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament while playing for Holland in a European Championships qualifier in Kazakhstan on Saturday night.

And with United currently at the wrong end of the Barclays Premier League table, the 27-year-old is disappointed to not be able to play his part in turning their 2015/16 campaign around.

"I'm devastated the scan has confirmed my biggest fear, that I have torn my knee cruciate playing for Holland in the game against Kazakhstan last night," Krul said.

"My recovery and hard work starts now to fully recover.

"I'm devastated I can't play a part on the pitch to help the team turn this season around. I still believe this Club can, and should, be up there with the top teams."
