Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson confirmed that midfielder Bakary Sako will not return this season.
The Mali international left the club's draw with West Ham this week under his own power, but scans soon revealed that he suffered major ligament damage in his fractured ankle. Sako had been a valuable member of the squad in recent weeks with three Premier League goals on the season. But now, Hodgson said Sako may not even make it back for the start of next season: "He certainly won’t play again this season, and he will do well to be fit for the start of next season – so it is a very, very serious injury. Coming as late as it did – the night before the transfer window was due to close the following day – didn’t really give us that much opportunity to change any plans because we were counting on him."
