Fredericks injury could keep him out for months

Ryan Fredericks could be out of action for the rest of the season after a scan this afternoon showed the right back has broken a bone in his shoulder.

He fell on it awkwardly after a challenge by Rodri in the  2-0 defeat at Manchester City at the Etihad and remained in considerable pain after the game and ahead of the scan today.

Sadly the bone concerned is on the joint and needs to be repaired via surgery with a source telling us by e mail: “The Man City player’s shoulder smashed into him  at exactly the wrong point.  It was really really bad luck – a one in a 20,000 chance.

Post-match David Moyes hadm said “I think it is his AC joint, in his shoulder, we think he might have popped it. I don’t know exactly what it is, but we don’t think it is a dislocation.”

In fact it has turned our far worse than feared with our source adding: “He will be seeing another expert but it looks certain to need surgery and it’s likely to be months rather than weeks.

  1. I feel for anyone at all who gets injured but poor old Fredericks has more than his fair share.

  2. I don’t rate Fredericks as a defender… Strictly Championship level but at least he has pace…A 36 year old finished Zabaletta it is then until the end of the season….or just play nagabia and to hell with it….😩😩😩

  3. Another player who once signed has been struck by the curse and become injury prone

  4. Sullivan’s failure to sign a RB knowing Zabaletta should have retired end of last season another calimitous decision that may incur relegation. Play Humphrey or Nagabia instead of Zabaletta.

  5. Wow, the description from Moyes is almost identical to what the doctor told me, “just popped the joint, x-ray as a precaution” turned out the be a break in the collar bone at the point where all the bits of the shoulder come together.
    However mine wasn’t done in a theatre of sporting combat, no, mine was me ****ed and running around on the beach in thongs (that’s flip flops for you POMs).
    Feel bad for the last, he’s had a terrible run with injuries, all the best for a quick recovery.

  6. If Zabaletta plays against Liverpool we are doomed for the rest of the season.
    Ngakia has to play and for the rest of the season.
    How many more times does it have to be said that playing Zabaletta is one of the reasons we are in this position
