Spurs academy graduate suffers season-ending injury

In what comes as a massive blow to former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Luke Amos, QPR have revealed that he will miss the rest of the season after rupturing his anterior cruciate ligament.

This is not the first time Amos has picked up an ACL injury after the midfielder was sidelined with a similar problem for the vast majority of the 2018-19 campaign.

That injury came right at the moment when the 23-year-old looked to be on the verge of breaking into the Tottenham first-team after he was handed his Premier League debut away at Newcastle United in August 2018.

Amos spent last year on loan at Loftus Road and managed to rebuild his career, getting plenty of game time under his belt for the Championship side.

He impressed enough during his loan spell for Mark Warburton’s side to make the move permanent in the summer, with Amos leaving Tottenham after 14 years at the club back in August.

However, the midfielder has now suffered another major blow after he came off in the 72nd minute against Bournemouth on Saturday.

Scans have now confirmed that the Spurs academy graduate has ruptured the ACL in his right knee, on the back of suffering the same injury to his left knee two years ago and will now undergo surgery.

Amos is expected to be out of action for a period between seven to nine months.

Spurs Web Opinion

This is indeed extremely disappointing for Amos as he certainly looked like he had the ability to make it as a Premier League player while coming through the ranks at Spurs. The one silver lining is that it is not the same ACL on his left knee which he ruptured two years ago, with this one being on the right. He now knows what it takes to come back from an injury of this kind.
