Fulham midfielder Joao Palhinha has probably dislocated his shoulder and can have a scan on Monday to search out out the extent of the damage, supervisor Marco Silva says.
The Portuguese was substituted late within the first of Fulham’s 3-2 win over Brentford within the Premier League Summer season Collection in Philadelphia on Sunday.
The 28-year-old left the pitch together with his arm supported in a sling by his shirt.
“Sadly it does not look good,” Fulham boss Silva mentioned.
“He is most likely dislocated his shoulder. Tomorrow he’s going to do a scan and will probably be extra clear. Let’s hope it is not one other long-term damage for us.”
On Saturday, Silva mentioned Palhinha had been the topic of curiosity from different golf equipment, with Liverpool and West Ham rumoured to be monitoring the participant.
