Jets' new signing suffers season-ending injury

Newcastle Jets have advised that promising young defender Daniel Alessi will miss the Hyundai A-League 2016/17 season after suffering an Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) injury in training recently.

Alessi joined the Jets in June 2016 on a two-season Hyundai A-League contract.

Newcastle Jets will support Alessi in his rehabilitation process over the coming months and look forward to him re-joining the club’s full training ahead of the Hyundai A-League 2017/18 campaign.
