Jordan Morris’ season with Swansea City is over.
The English Championship club said the loan player from Seattle Sounders FC suffered a “significant” damage to his ACL when he landed awkwardly during City’s loss at Huddersfield at the John Smith’s Stadium Saturday.
“He has had a bad injury, unfortunately, there’s significant ligament damage, [to his] ACL,” Swansea City head coach Steve Cooper said on the club’s website Monday morning. Everything we hoped it wasn’t, it has turned out to be,” said head coach Steve Cooper.
“It’s the end of his season with us and a long road back to recovery for him. It’s a cruel injury anyway, but in terms of him fulfilling his ambition to play in Europe, and embracing what we are trying to do here, it is a really tough one for him and us to take.”
It was not announced how long Morris would be sidelined.
Morris, 26, was loaned to Swansea City until May.
“Jordan has our support,” Cooper said. “We don’t know if his recovery will be here or back in America – those conversations are ongoing – but, first and foremost, we are gutted for him.
“He was pushing to get into the team after a spell of getting fit, so it is really unfortunate in many ways.
“One thing I will say about Jordan is he is an excellent professional. He is a really good person, and really commits to his profession. We are sure he will commit to his recovery and come back stronger.”
