Hugo Out For Three Months!

Hugo Out For Three Months!



Wigan Athletic striker Hugo Rodallega could be facing up to three months on the sidelines following an injury sustained in Saturdays Premier League defeat at Goodison Park against Everton.

With the Latics 2-1 down and time running out the Colombia international battled for the ball with Everton substitute Denis Stracqualursi, unfortunately for Hugo, following the challenge, his right leg appeared to get caught under his body and twisted at the knee, with the Latics man obviously in distress the referee stopped the game and following lengthy treatment he was carried from the pitch on a stretcher with his leg in a brace.

Latics boss Roberto Martinez confirmed that Rodallega has suffered a knee ligament injury and faces a lengthy spell on the treatment table, speaking to the clubs official website Martinez said: 'Hugo has damaged the medial ligament in his right knee and it doesn't look good.

'He's been looking sharp and enjoying his football and it's the biggest negative to come out of the game.'

'The scans will give us a final verdict in the week but, if it's a rupture of the ligament, we're looking at him being out for around nine to 12 weeks so we'll keep our fingers crossed and see if Hugo's body has reacted well to the injury or not.'


Latics appear to be suffering from a spate of early season injury woes, James McCarthy has struggled with an ankle knock, Antolin Alcaraz and Steve Gohouri are both out with calf problems, full backs Ronnie Stam and Emmerson Boyce are sidelined at the moment and Momo Diame has had a slight problem that kept him out of the Everton game, now with Hugo looking to be out until Christmas we will have our squad strength tested to the hilt.

He will be missed? yea right. For gods sake he is supposed to be a striker, a goal or two from him might make him missable. The injury has done Roberto a favour, at least the play me if I am fit contract clause goes out the window for a while. All we need now is for Gomez, Di Santo and Lopez to tweak a hammie enough to put them out for a few weeks which will allow someone with a bit of talent to get a game.

Longtom, abit far mate, we all know he is a good player, but he is wasted on the wing, still good but with Di Santo on form what can you do? hope for a speedy recovery for him!
