Brentford striker Nikos Karelis has suffered a serious knee injury that is set to prevent him playing for a significant period of time. The 27-year-old suffered the injury in the first half of Brentford’s win against Millwall last Saturday, 19 October. It was his first start for the Club and came just after he had hit the post, coming within inches of marking his full debut with a goal.
Nikos was seen by a consultant earlier this week and has begun his rehabilitation at the Club’s Training Ground with our medical team. He will have surgery in the coming weeks and will then work his way back to fitness.
The Greece international joined The Bees in August after leaving Koninklijke Racing Club Genk in the summer. He signed a one-year deal to join The Bees, with a Club option for an extra year, and made his debut as a substitute against Stoke City last month. He has played four games for Brentford so far.
