Nottingham Forest midfielder Matty Cash has provided fans with an update on his ankle injury and has said that he will come back stronger than before.

The midfielder recently had ankle surgery to repair the injury which he sustained during the Championship outfit’s 2-1 win against Girona in a pre-season friendly.

The 20-year-old underwent surgery on his birthday and jokingly said “Happy Birthday to me!” with a crying laughing emoji on social media with a picture of him in his hospital bed.

Cash updated fans about his injury on his official Twitter account on Monday after he posted a picture and said that his operation went well.

The injury came as a blow as it was the second serious injury he had sustained within the past 12 months.

Back in September the Englishman fractured his leg in his side’s 2-2 draw against Aston Villa which saw him miss 13 games and remain on the sidelines for two months.

The homegrown player is expected to be out for another few months and will start his recovery process with the hope of returning to full fitness to play in as much of the season as possible.
