English U21 International Duncan Watmore’s anterior cruciate ligament injury seems to be an everlasting one, as it will keep him out of play for the rest of the season.

The Manchester United academy player suffered a similar injury last season in December while playing against Leicester City in the Premier League. Sadly, he could play only six competitive games before suffering the same injury again.

Chris Coleman, Sunderland manager, expressed his grief in an interview: “This season probably won’t happen for him. Life is frustrating sometimes as he’s desperate to play football and desperate to play for Sunderland.”

“He had surgery today so it’s as we feared and it’ll be another long one for him, but forget me and forget us, he’s a young man with a real good career ahead of him and he’s a good guy who loves his football. He’ll be devastated and we have to take care of him, however long it takes, and he’ll be back I’m sure about that.”

However, the 23-year-old Sunderland forward received a much-needed boost for his recovery last evening, when La Liga giants Real Madrid wrote a letter wishing him a speedy recuperation.

His father, Ian Watmore, shared the picture of the letter sent by Los Blancos on social media, and the polite gesture has made a million football fans happy and proud.
