Sympathy For Wigan's Edman

I don't know about anyone else but I HATE seeing any player suffer a serious injury, no matter whom they play for or what my personal opinion is of the player. So seeing Wigan Athletic defender Erik Edman injured against Blackburn Rovers on Saturday saddened me.

Late in the first half of Rovers' 3-1 win over Wigan at Ewood Park Edman suffered what seems to be a ruptured anterior ligament injury in fairly innocuous circumstances. Although Jason Roberts was looking to get on the end of a cross into the box a defensive clearance always seemed the most likely outcome (as it proved) but the Swedish International appeared to get his foot caught in the Ewood turf, or at least get himself in an awkward position (maybe it was a bit of both) which caused the serious injury.

Any serious injury to ANY player (even if I don't particularly like the footballer) isn't something that I like seeing, seeing this happen against Rovers is something that I like seeing EVEN less. I wish Edman all the very best in his recovery, which seems like it will be a long road as it looks as though he will be out until September or October.

I wish Edman all the very best with his recovery from a very nasty injury, and an injury caused in freak circumstances really as no one is to blame.

No blame on Roberts at all Erik just twisted as he fell, we started to look like we had a defence since we signed him...fell apart when he went off

All the best to Erik. He is a good player and he will be sorely missed by Wigan. Good luck Erik.

I hate seeing injuries like these - he just jumped, landed and twisted his knee. So easily done.
