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.
