Unhappy Triad For Koné

Without the season started Sevilla already bad news comes again. The biggest signing in club’s history will not be available for the rest of the year as he will have to endure a severe knee injury. Arouna Kone’s career is now in jeopardy after suffering a severe knee injury in a national team friendly against Guinea in Paris. After the tenth minute he suffered a torn ACL, MCL, and meniscus damage- the infamous ¨unhappy triad¨. Ivory Coast were able to come out of the game with a pyrrhic 2-1 victory.

Sevilla brass is scrambling to find a replacement with such short notice. They are also aware that to obtain a top of the line player, they will have to spend some money that they will most likely not have available or willing to spend it. Not only that, they also have a little bit more than a week to get that done as the summer transfer window closes.

 Unhappy Triad For Koné

Kone was coming into this season had lots to prove as Sevilla invested a great deal of money on him as they bought him from PSV Eindhoven for a record transfer for the Spanish side. He was not able to satisfy the expectations that such a transaction would place on him. He appeard in 24 matches and only scored one goal. So for Koné this year was one that would allow him to make amends with the Nervionense fans.
