Souare could face six months out

Pape Souare could be sidelined for up to six months as he recovers from the injuries he suffered in a car crash.

The Crystal Palace defender broke a bone in his thigh and fractured his jaw when he was involved in an accident on the M4 on Sunday.

He underwent surgery at Royal London Hospital and is expected to be discharged on Saturday but the 26-year-old Senegal international is facing a lengthy rehabilitation with manager Alan Pardew revealing it could be six months before he is able to return.

"Hopefully Pape will be out tomorrow. It was a terrible accident. We owe a huge debt to the London Air Ambulance and the surgeons who helped him," Pardew told reporters at his weekly press conference.

"A good number of players have gone up to see him. It was a serious incident… He’s very lucky his injuries aren’t as bad as they could have been. The extent of some of the muscular injuries is still not known.

"I don’t think we have any concerns. It was a broken thigh; that should repair as normal. 4,5 months. Maybe 6, he should be up and running again.

"He isn’t having the best, but we’re all very supportive. We love Pape and can’t wait to have him back."

Souare joined Palace from Lille in January 2015 and has made 46 Premier League appearances for the club.
