Aston Villa midfielder Boubacar Kamara will be out of action for a month due to injury


Boubacar Kamara was ruled out for a month after picking up an injury in the 1-0 win over Crystal Palace at the weekend.

The Frenchman was sent off in the 59th minute for a hard tackle on Cheick Doucoure, receiving two bookings in the game.

Kamara needed help to leave the pitch and had to be carried straight into the tunnel by two members of Villa’s medical team.

Villa had always hoped to avoid injury for the season, but the news of the four-week layoff is still a blow.

The exact schedule has yet to be determined, but Kamara will miss at least five of the remaining 13 games.

The 23-year-old has been one of Villa’s most reliable and consistent players this season.

His presence will be missed and Leander Dendoncker will also be for personal reasons, with Unai Emery now short on numbers in midfield but saying he has enough cover.

“Calum Chambers can play in that position and I can use other players like Jacob Ramsey,” Emery said.

Villa return to West Ham in the Premier League on Sunday.
