Luton Coach Confirms Nakamba’s Season-Ending Injury

Luton Coach Confirms Nakamba's Season-Ending Injury

LUTON Town manager Rob Edwards has provided an update on Zimbabwean midfielder and Warriors captain Marvellous Nakamba, suggesting that the player is unlikely to feature for the remainder of the 2023/24 English Premiership season due to an injury sustained late last year.

Nakamba suffered a meniscus tear while passing the ball during a training session with The Hatters and underwent surgery last month in hopes of a speedy recovery, initially expected to sideline him for six to eight weeks.

However, speaking to Lutontoday, Edwards indicated that Nakamba’s recovery process will require a more extended period.

“It’s not great. It is still going to be quite a significant one. We still don’t know definitely on a time, but it is months,” said Edwards.

“It’s a real hard one for him, first of all, because he’s so important to us.

“You don’t want anyone injured anyway, but I love seeing his smiley face around all the time, around the training ground.

“When he’s in there (treatment room at The Brache) he’s still smiling, but you can see it’s hurting him that he can’t get out there and train.

“But we’ll do everything we can to support him and get him back as quick as possible. When that is, right now I don’t know, but it will be a couple more months at least.”

Luton Town currently finds themselves struggling in the league, sitting third from bottom with 16 points from 20 games. Edwards acknowledges the significance of Nakamba’s absence, especially considering his pivotal role in the team’s promotion to the English Premier League last season.
