Manchester City full-back has surgery on tendon injury

Manchester City and Republic of Ireland international full-back Megan Campbell has today undergone surgery to address a tendon injury in her foot according to reports on the FA Women’s Super League club’s official website.

The 26-year-old Drogheda-born defender has suffered an injury-plagued spell with Manchester City since joining the club in February 2016 and her luck has not improved in 2020.

Campbell played 67 minutes of Manchester City’s opening game of the calendar year at Tottenham Hotspur before sustaining a tendon injury in her foot. The player was replaced by Demi Stokes for the remainder of the match as City won 4-1 at The Hive.

It has now been reported that Campbell has gone under the surgeon’s knife and the player will now begin her rehabilitation with no expected timescale for recovery revealed to date.

Campbell started her senior career in her homeland with Dublin-based side St Francis before moving to another Irish side in Raheny United. A spell playing in the United States with Florida State Seminoles followed with Campbell having obtained a scholarship at Florida State University before the defender began a career in the FA Women’s Super League with Manchester City.

The player is a full international for the Republic of Ireland and she will miss their upcoming fixtures against Greece and Montenegro through injury.
