Ball Out For 6 Weeks


David Ball, the promising Manchester City striker has been dealt a major setback after being told he could face up to 6 weeks on the sidelines after fracturing a metatarsal in his left foot. The injury was obtained during a training session. Ball was named on the bench for the Manchester derby and has been named in some other first team squad.

Ball has been in very impressive form - he has scored 6 goals in as many outings for the reserves. Here is what the 19 year old striker had to say to www.mcfc.co.uk:

"I am absolutely crestfallen, the injury could not have come at a worse time," lamented the 19-year-old after treatment on his left foot which is encased in a boot. "I would like to think that I am a quick healer and I am getting the best possible care so I will be back as soon as possible. The medical staff reckons a month minimum. When I first picked up the injury I was really, really down because the timing of it is so bad."

"I have just been in a couple of first team squads and been training regularly with them and now I will have to wait to impress again. Then there is the trip to Abu Dhabi and the prestigious friendly that I will miss.
"It couldn`t really have happened at a worse time but injury is part and parcel of being a professional footballer. The great thing is that I can work on other aspects of my game for a while including my strength."


This is really annoying news, I was really looking forward to getting a good look at the striker in City's game with the United Arab Emirates later this November. From what I have heard, he is a very good striker and he is highly rated amongst the academy coaches at City. Only time will tell.

Our strikers are forever getting injured this season whether they are first team regulars, subs and now even reserve team players.

apparently and I am no medical man. factures actually knit stronger once they have been broken. and I don't think this will be a long term thing as the lad appears to be as strong as an Ox, but he and his goals will be missed in the reserves.
