Benitez uncertain about Atsu’s return

Newcastle United manager Rafa Benitez is still unsure when Ghana international Christian Atsu will return from injury.

The 25-year-old midfielder injured his groin on international duty with the Black Stars earlier this month and has been out since.

Benitez is very pleased with the progress of Atsu’s recovery but is hesitant to put a timeline on his return.

“Atsu is getting better, but still he will need some time. It is too early to say when he will be back,” he said.

Atsu has been in good form for the Magpies this season scoring once and providing one assist in his eleven appearances.
