Get Better Soon Wilf

Get Better Soon Wilf

Wilf, get better soon from all at Vital Villa.

The unlucky Dutch international left-back was left in agony as he dislocated his right ankle during a challenge in the match v Odense.

The players who came over to the bench looked distraught and you could clearly see from my pitch level view Wilfred Bouma's ankle at a different angle to his leg. Ouch.



The good news is that Martin O'Neill has confirmed that Bouma has dislocated his right ankle, not great but much better than a break which is what it looked like at the time.

O'Neill told www.avfc.co.uk: 'The doctor is back from the hospital and says it's a dislocation. Thankfully the skin isn't broken, which is really good news. They've re-set it and he's now in plaster. It's obviously a serious injury to a player who's been playing exceptionally well - he had a great, great season last year and he will be missed. The players are going to visit him tonight and we wish him all the very best and the injury is a big blow to us.'

Chin up Wilf, get well soon.

brings back bad memories of when I first joined Vital and fell down four steps dislocating my left ankle, breaking it, snapping a tendon and also breaking the little bone at the back of my leg. I'd only been doing Vital Chelsea for three days!

I initially thought it was a Odense player as Wilf's tackle looked wreckless on the tv...my friend I was watching it with seemed to think a dislocation takes longer to heal than a clean break, which I'm not sure about??? Gutted for him. Get well soon Wilf.

It's his right foot though, so not his kicking foot which is a better I suppose?
