Kyle Magennis Injury Update

Shaun Maloney has confirmed that Kyle Magennis is back in training!

Shaun Maloney has confirmed that Kyle Magennis is back in training!

The 23-year-old midfielder had an excellent start to the 2021/22 season bagging two goals in Hibernian’s first two cinch Premiership games.

He continued that fine vein of form playing an influential role in the middle of midfield, alongside Jake Doyle-Hayes and Joe Newell, and hasn’t lost domestically this season.

The last time he featured, though, was in our 1-0 win over St Johnstone at Easter Road at the end of September, where he came off at half-time.

He has since been struggling with a problematic groin injury but is close to overcoming it!

After working closely with the Club’s medical and sports science team, Kyle is back in training, which delighted Shaun Maloney.

“Today’s the first time he's joined in with training but he’s at a very, very early stage.

“To have him for a full session, although adapted, is really good and I’m really glad to see him.

“Hopefully he feels a real part of it now, because obviously I've been here a few weeks and he's not been able to feel really part of the squad, even though he's been in every tactical meeting.

“Hopefully in the next few weeks, he can get himself in a position where he can fight for selection in the starting eleven and in the squad.”
