Charlton Athetic Women’s goalkeeper Shanell Salgado will miss the whole of the 2020/21 campaign after tearing her ACL during pre-season.

The 26-year-old underwent an MRI scan which confirmed she has a ruptured ACL.

Manager Riteesh Mishra told “It’s devastating news for Shanell. She’s had a really strong off-season and since lockdown she’s come back really sharp and I felt that this season was going to be a big season for her.

“It’s a big blow for her and for us as a club. She was a big part of our group last year and helped us get through tough times so we are right behind her and wish her the best throughout.

“Shanell has a great attitude and work ethic and we know she will get through this and our club’s medical team and all other staff will help support her through her recovery.”
