O'Doherty sidelined by injury

Western Sydney Wanderers FC can confirm midfielder Jordan O’Doherty has injured his Anterior Crucial Ligament (ACL) and will be sidelined for the remainder of the season.

The midfielder sustained the injury in the first half of the Wanderers Hyundai A-League Round 20 clash against Perth Glory on Sunday. 

O’Doherty was gutted with the confirmation that he had injured his Anterior Crucial Ligament but is motivated to come back stronger than ever. 

“This (injury) will spur me on to get back stronger than I’ve ever been before,” said O’Doherty. 

“I’m absolutely gutted that I’m going to miss so much football but the road to recovery and hard work starts now. 

“Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to message me, I truly do appreciate the support.”

CEO John Tsatsimas said O’Doherty will have the club’s full support behind him during his recovery. 

“It’s very disappointing to see that we will be without Jordan for the remainder of the Hyundai A-League season,” said Tsatsimas. 

“We will provide Jordan with the utmost support both physically and mentally through this tough period. 

“We hope to see him back on the field at the earliest opportunity.”
