QPR midfielder Amos suffers another knee injury

QPR’s former Tottenham midfielder Luke Amos could be facing another long spell on the sidelines with a knee injury.

Amos, who was allowed to leave Spurs by Jose Mourinho during the summer, limped off during the second half of Saturday’s 0-0 draw at Bournemouth.

QPR expect to learn the extent of the injury in the next 24 hours.

Amos spent the best part of a year on the sidelines with a knee injury prior to joining QPR from Tottenham.

He suffered anterior cruciate ligament damage during an Under-23s game weeks after making his first-team debut for Spurs.

Amos spent last season on loan with the R’s and signed a permanent deal during the summer.

He appeared to have rebuilt his fitness and form and another setback would be a huge blow for Amos.

Speaking to Tottenham’s website last year, Amos talked about how tough his long-term injury had been emotionally.

“When you go through a nine-month injury, you are angry about so many things,” he said.

“I know it’s part of football. It is what it is. I have to make sure I’m working the hardest I’ve ever worked to get back to where I was and then push on again.

“People always say ‘you’ll come back stronger’ and at the start, I thought ‘yes, I will’ but when you get into it, you really understand that sentiment. I’m pushing myself mentally and physically every day.

“It’s literally blood, sweat and tears. I’ve had cries in the gym. Mentally, it’s like a battle daily.”
