The Wellington Phoenix have confirmed this afternoon that defender Louis Fenton has undergone shoulder surgery and will miss the rest of the Hyundai A-League season 19/20.
Fenton had been out since Round 5 with a shoulder injury, which he suffered against Melbourne City FC on the 3rd November.
Wellington Phoenix Head Coach Ufuk Talay says it is a disappointing outcome for the club and for Louis himself, but it is “something that needed to get done”.
“He’ll miss the season, which is a big blow for us, but the main thing is we get him right, he gets his body right and he’s ready for pre-season next year.”
We wish Louis all the best in his recovery and look forward to seeing him back on the field as soon as possible.
