THE Hornets’ Head of Medical Marco Cesarini has confirmed that Almen Abdi has dislocated his shoulder, although he was keen to emphasize that it won’t necessarily mean an extended period on the sidelines for the Swiss midfielder.
Abdi was stretchered from the Elland Road pitch just minutes after scoring the Hornets’ second goal in the 6-1 win over Leeds United on Saturday.
“Almen’s having a scan today (Wednesday), but we’re confident the injury won’t mean a lengthy absence,” Cesarini explained.
