Millwall midfielder to miss start of the season after surgery

MILLWALL midfielder Liam Trotter has gone under the knife to correct a knee problem and will now miss the start of the season.

The 24-year-old is expected to be out of action for six to eight weeks but the Lions are hopeful that he can resume full training "in the early part of the season."

Trotter has been struggling with his knee since April and missed much of the run in at the end of the 2012-13 campaign because of it, only returning on the final day against Derby.

Speaking after that game, he said:  "It's been disappointing. I always want to play and be involved. It's worse when you don't really know exactly what the injury is or why it's giving you problems. My knee isn't 100 per cent but I was able to come through 90 minutes."

    I keep forgetting he is only 24! No wonder he is so inconsistent.

    Why has this "knee problem" only just been picked up, it sounds as if it has been on going. If it was an injury picked up in training surely that would have been reported.
    Looks like J Smith has had a reprieve as our creative midfielder lol.

      @Sealion: He had been out towards the end of the season with the knee injury for a couple of weeks or so and ended up playing the last couple of games with it heavily strapped up, could possibly be the same knee, would explain why he never really got going on the second half of the season

        @banksy: Yeh but in that case why the hell didn't he have it done sooner instead of waiting till the last minute or do MFC rely on the NHS and were waiting for an appointment ?

    With SL being active in the transfer market, this has to be the most awkward time to get an injury, as now Trotter may struggle to get back into the first 11...it may also have the opposite effect and put a rocket up his bottom! Only time will tell. I wonder if his injury was picked up by a professor at Warwick Uni where they are training?

    What a shame, I hope Liam 's op is succesful and he comes back into the side fit and in top form, he is a very skillful player who needs to find consistency.

    I think Lomas had a word with Trotter along the lines of ' So, why were you s*** last year ?
    The answer would have been 'cos of my knee'. Double training sessions this week would have brought that issue to the top of things that needed doing. I'd rather have him out at the beginning rather than half way through. Good luck Liam and get fit soon.

    Explains why some people thought he looked lazy this season.
