Everton Balls: Ross Barkley’s Missing Five Months Mystery

by | 20th, August 2014

COMPARE and contrast the words of Everton manager Roberto Martinez talking about injured player Ross Barkley.

August 19:

“His knee has reacted really well to treatment. It’s a medial ligament injury and we know that Ross, in terms of the power and the strength that he has in his body, he could easily react to treatment a lot better than other players. I don’t know where the figure of five months [in the papers] came from but obviously the extent of the injury is a little unsure at the moment because we don’t know how the next two weeks are going to develop…”

August 16:

“We know it’s a partial tear but that could be anything between seven weeks and I’ve seen injuries like that that take four or five months.”

It’s a mystery, Roberto…
