RALPH Hasenhuttl has given an Armando Broja update to concerned fans after the goalscorer limped off against Burnley, before heading down the tunnel with an ice-pack at full time.

Looking like a potential ankle injury to his left foot, any major concern would have blighted what has been a superb start to life in the first-team for the Chelsea loanee – as he repays Hasenhuttl’s faith with two goals in his first two starts.

The 20-year-old Albanian international has had to be patient and work hard for his chance after summer signing Adam Armstrong was initially tasked to replace the goals lost by £30million rated Danny Ings’ sale.

Now he’s firmly snatched it, it would be a big blow for both the club to lose the imposing forward for crucial upcoming games with Watford and Aston Villa, and for the player to lose momentum gathered that includes goals for his country in World Cup qualifying.

But the Austrian boss has ruled a positive update over the potential concern, revealing after the game: “I hope so, it doesn't look too bad, hopefully.

“It will take a few days (for him to recover), I think.

"He is not allowed to play (against parent side Chelsea) on Tuesday anyway, so we're okay."

Although fans will not want to get too attached to a loan player who will surely be vying for a chance at the end of his spell, Hasenhuttl couldn’t help but shower praise when asked about the youngster’s ability.

He added: “I think that he has the speed in the one against one, passing and shooting when necessary is very good, he is a threat, this is something that definitely helps out team.

“We saw two times Armando Broja starting and two times he scored. He gives us some qualities that we didn’t have so far and (I’m) very happy to have him.

“Tino I’m sure will also score more in the future, he is a very talented young player and absolutely convinced with this squad we can have a lot of fun.

“It’s a very young squad we have here with a lot of young players for the future, give them the time to develop and you will see that."

Hasenhuttl continued: "You don’t get that many chances against Burnley normally. We have created them very well and that’s the way we want to do it but finally it must mean more outcomes, this I agree.

“But yeah it should be enough for winning a game but we didn’t do it and get a point, onto the next game.”
