'If It's Football, It's Vital'

United - More Thoughts on Valencia!

The severity of the injury, suffered by Valencia, shocked everyone, none more so that the unfortunate Kirk Broadfoot who was the innocent party in the incident.

Speaking about the incident, Broadfoot has remarked to the media,

"I`m not too sure what happened. I just slid in and when I looked round his bone was sticking out of his leg."

"I`ve never seen anything like that so close before."

"You see things like that on TV and it`s not good. But to see it there in front of you, it doesn`t look nice."

"We tried to get the physio on to help him because you don`t like to see that. I just hope he makes a fast recovery."


I`m sure we`ll all echo those sentiments Kirk, the hush that descended upon Old Trafford was something that I`d not heard since David Busst (of Coventry) suffered a career ending injury, several years ago, on our pitch.

Concerns about Valencia have also been expressed by those associated with his national team, Ecuador. Their team doctor, Hector Bohoorquez, has spoken about the support Valencia will need and is quoted in the media as having commented,

"Valencia will need constant psychological support to help him cope."

"These types of injury create a great impact upon players when they see their bones come apart."


The more quotes you pick up on the more horrific the injury seems.

But amongst all the sadness, is the realization that we`ve lost a player, for the remainder of the season, who does a damn fine job, a fact appreciated by Darren Fletcher who is quoted as having remarked,

"He had a great first season and was looking to push on this year."

"That is why the injury is a real blow."

"He has only just got back from the injury he suffered at the end of last season too."

"He is a strong character and a good lad. He has real determination - he will be back and I`m sure he has a long future at United."


We can only hope you are right!
