Micah has received more positive news following an operation on the knee injury sustained during Manchester City’s 1-0 win over Swansea.
The defender had to be stretchered off the pitch with oxygen after sustaining the injury midway through the second-half and, with no one around him when it happened, there was concern he would be ruled out for a substantial amount of time.
However, while an operation to repair the injury means he won’t see action again before Christmas, Micah was handed the best possible news given the circumstance.
“The positive thing is that the injury has been repaired so the knee will be as good as new,” he said.
“I have a brace on it and I am using crutches. I can’t do anything at all for the next four to six weeks and I am probably looking at 12-16 weeks before I am back in action.
“I knew straight away in the game that it was quite a bad injury. The knee locked and I couldn’t straighten it.
“I suppose it could have been even worse and not repairable which would have meant removing the meniscus; so I am being positive. Injuries are all part and parcel of the job but this coming on top of the other one I do feel a little hard done to!
“I will be working as hard as I can to get back as quickly as I can and I thank all the fans who have sent their best wishes.”
Micah had made an impressive return to action for City following the injury sustained during Team GB’s Olympics campaign, coinciding with three wins from four and two clean sheets.
