Bournemouth’s record-signing Tyrone Mings ruled out for rest of season with knee injury


More bad injury news for Bournemouth, as Tyrone Mings will miss the rest of the season after suffering a torn ACL and MCL in the Cherries’ 1-1 draw against Leicester City last week.

Mings will join Max Gradel on the sidelines, who ruptured his ACL against Leicester City, and has been ruled out for at least six months.

It’s a brutal blow for Bournemouth, as the club’s two biggest signings ever have had their seasons cut short after just four matches.

Manager Eddie Howe was obviously upset with the situation, but is hoping other players will step up to fill the void.

I feel for the players more than anyone. I’m really disappointed for them that they’re both going to be out for long periods.

We are certainly going to miss them. They were a key part of what we were doing going forward. We hunted both of them, especially Max, for a long time.

Both players are positive about the future and we will look after them and back them.

It’s a big blow but we have to recover and it will be an opportunity for somebody else.”

The Cherries have enjoyed a decent start to the season, earning four points through four matches. However, now they must kick on without arguably their most talented players on both sides of the ball.
