The 19-year-old midfielder was making his O's debut on loan from QPR but lasted just 38 minutes of the FA Cup win over Southport before rupturing his anterior cruciate ligament.

Sutherland now faces up to nine months on the sidelines and Slade told the club website: "Myself, the staff and the players are all devastated at the news.

"In the short time he was here, Frankie gave a great example of how a young pro should carry themselves with his dedication and commitment to the cause.

"Everybody was wishing him to do well on his debut and he started so brightly. Frankie is made of the right stuff and has a great attitude. I'm sure he will bounce back fitter and stronger than before."

Sutherland, now beginning his rehab back at Loftus Road, had a message for his Orient team-mates.

He wrote on Twitter: "Just want to say thank you to everyone at Leyton Orient especially all the lads. Great bunch and hope they can get promotion!"

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
