Yaya Sanogo has used his official Facebook account to send well wishes to Crystal Palace’s Pape Souare who is set to miss a number of months after being involved in a car accident in September.

Souare had to be airlifted to hospital when he was involved in the accident on the motorway which left him with a broken thigh bone and an issue with his jaw.

In a statement on the Palace website, chairman Steve Parish said, “Pape Souare has this morning undergone surgery on both his jaw and thigh.

“Thanks to the fantastic response of the emergency services who cut him from the car and the amazing surgeons, doctors and staff at the Royal London Hospital he is expected to make a full recovery and should be discharged on Friday.

“We would like to make special mention of the London Air Ambulance service who flew Pape directly from the scene to the hospital ensuring he rapidly had access to the very best medical care.

“The club note that this organisation is a charity and completely funded from donations as such we are making a contribution and would urge everyone to support this invaluable service for the people of London.”

Sanogo, who is no stranger to injuries himself but certainly a stranger to Arsenal fans as we all continue to wonder just what is going on with him, said on his Facebook account:

Translated, it says, “Strength to my brother @ p.souare_23 Whether you come back stronger inchallah”

Souare joined Palace in January 2015 at the same time Yaya arrived there for his loan spell.
