City Suffer Another Blow

City Suffer Another Blow

Google language translator

Manchester City Football Club confirmed earlier this morning that Bulgarian left-winger, Martin Petrov would be sidelined until at least February.

Since his time at Eastland the 29-year-old has been ravaged with injury, so to hear the news that he has a tear in his meniscus (knee) is disappointing to say the least.

Talking to the official Manchester City website, manager Mark Hughes said...

"Martin went to see a specialist on Monday and will fly out to see the guy that did his anterior cruciate ligament to have it rechecked. The news is that it's not his ACL this time; he's got a tear in his meniscus that will need to be repaired."

"Although it's good news about the ACL it's still a bad injury and he will probably be out for three or four months."


The injury occurred last week while playing for his native country.

Others on the City treatment table include Micah Richards, Darius Vassell, Benjani, Michael Johnson and Valeri Bojinov.

This injury could have been far worse. If it had upset the old cruciate fix for instance. Three months seems a long time but Martin has been through this kind of thing before and come back stronger than ever. We will definitely need him for the UEFA matches. He is one of the best wide men in Europe, possibly the best on the left.
