Cambridge United defender Mamadou Jobe set for extended period on sidelines with cruciate ligament injury

Cambridge United have been rocked by the news that Mamadou Jobe is facing an extended spell on the sidelines with an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury.

Having signed a new three-year contract last month, much was expected of the highly-rated centre-back heading into the 2024/25 Sky Bet League One campaign.

However, the U’s have this afternoon confirmed that the 21-year-old will be out of action for the next few months as he works his way back to full fitness from a serious knee injury.

A post on the club’s X feed read: “We are devastated to confirm that Mamadou Jobe has ruptured his ACL.

“Mams will be fully supported by the Club throughout his rehab and we wish him a speedy recovery.”

Jobe only made his Football League debut for United in late March following his recall from a loan spell at Gateshead, yet he went on to make a positive impression during his five appearances before his season was ended prematurely with a concussion.

Such was the impact made by the Harlow-born defender, he was voted Player of the Month for April by the club’s supporters.
