Stoke boss says Geoff Cameron will sit out Leicester City clash


Geoff Cameron is set to spend some more time on the sideline.

Stoke City manager Mark Hughes has said that Cameron still needs more tests to diagnose the ankle injury the 30-year-old American defender suffered on Jan. 5, and will miss Saturday’s game as a result.

The versatile defender hasn’t played in Stoke’s three games since that cup match vs. Liverpool.

“(Cameron’s) still got an issue with problems just above the ankle and it isn’t progressing too quickly,” Hughes told reporters on Thursday. “So we will have to probably investigate (his ankle) further, so he’s still unavailable.”

Stoke will hit the road to play second-place Leicester City on Saturday without Cameron, who has started in 18 of 22 appearances for the club during the 2015-16 campaign.

What do you think of Cameron’s injury? Worried he could miss a lot of time? For how long do you expect him to be sidelined?

  1. Remember when Bob bradley was a heavy favorite in the rumour mill to take over as manager at Leicester city, and everyone on this site said those stupid british people don’t know football and should hire him over a European or british “re tread” manager. How’d that re tread work out for leicester city?

  2. If it is a high ankle sprain, I have seen that injury keep players in other sports like basketball and football out for over a month. I had not realized he was injured and wondered why he didn’t play in their last game. Since Shawcross has returned from injury I was afraid Cameron was going to be benched until someone else in defense was injured.

    • He’s been playing in midfield. Hughes obviously values Geoff and he has been finding a spot for him in the lineup when he’s healthy. Hopefully he’s fit again and in form for the WC qualifiers in March

      • If been watching Cam play CM over the past month and have been impressed, he keeps it very simple and does not try to do the spectacular. His passes are of the obvious variety but he keeps possession and breaks up plays very well.
