Former West Bromwich Albion defender facing a ‘tragedy’ due to a succession of serious setbacks…

Former West Bromwich Albion defender Nathan Ferguson, who left the club in January 2020 and subsequently joined Crystal Palace, has encountered a series of unfortunate injuries during his time with the latter team. His recent attempt at a comeback for Crystal Palace resulted in yet another significant injury.

Nathan Ferguson, who had impressed under manager Slaven Bilic and played a key role in Albion’s promotion, played his final game for West Brom at Cardiff City in January 2020. He then joined Crystal Palace, but his time with the club has been marred by what manager Roy Hodgson has referred to as a ‘tragedy’ due to a succession of serious setbacks.

This week, Ferguson participated in a 90-minute match for Crystal Palace’s under 21s in the Premier League International Cup. However, it was reported by The Athletic that he sustained a severe hamstring injury during the game, which is expected to keep him sidelined for an extended period.

Roy Hodgson expressed his pleasure at seeing Ferguson back on the field but was uncertain about the severity of the injury. This recent hamstring injury is not the first one he has endured since joining Crystal Palace.

Over the past few years, he has also faced setbacks related to Achilles, knee, and foot issues. Ferguson, who had shown great promise during his early months at West Brom, has struggled to make a meaningful impact during his nearly four-year tenure at Crystal Palace.

He has only managed to play eight minutes in the Premier League, which occurred on Boxing Day in 2021 against Tottenham, and has completed a full 90 minutes for the under 21s only once since joining the club over three years ago.
