Nine Long Months

And just like that, Bolton hearts break. Our favorite South Korean winger was hurt in yesterday's friendly and now we know just how bad the damage is and well... it's not looking pretty. Before we get to the bad news, here's what the manager had to say about young Chungy:

"We will make sure Chung-Yong gets all the support he needs, as now it is all about his recovery and well-being. That is the most important thing.

"The operation went well and we would like to pass on our thanks to the medical staff involved."

Nine months out. Nine long, miserable months without our influential right winger as he recovers from two breaks in his lower right leg courtesy of Newport County's Tom Miller. We, like the rest of the Bolton Wanderers community wish him the speediest of recoveries and can only imagine he'll come back stronger and better than ever.
