As expected Blackburn Rovers’ Bruno Berner is facing a VERY lengthily injury lay off, after sustaining a broken bone in his foot against Huddersfield Town on Wednesday Evening.

Berner limped away from the Pre-Season friendly with an injury to his right foot, with the worst being feared. Having undergone X-ray’s on Thursday afternoon these fears were recognised with it revealed he has broken a bone, which will see him out for SEVERAL months, with him having an operation later this week.

The Swiss International is now set to be out for around a third of the season, some three or four months.

  • This is a MAJOR blow to the player and Rovers, and is exactly would you DON’T want at this point of the season. Really bad lack for Berner, who would have hoped to have been more involved this season, but will already be playing catch up come the end of this year/the turn of the next.

  • Bruno is the main cover on the left hand side, maybe Andy Taylor will get a chance now though!!! Shame for Bruno i think this was the season he was going to get a chance with all these games we are going to have.

  • It is a shame for the player he looks decent enough cover, after all thats all he’ll be to Warnock but like Roverjoy say’s it will maybe benefit one of our younger players like Taylor, who really deserves a crack at the team

  • Do you not think three or four months is a lengthily lay-off guys?!?! That’s a third of the season, so I’d call that an extended spell on the sidelines!!!

  • I think I see what you are getting at?!?! Maybe the questining of the use of “lengthily” itself as oppsed to “lengthy” Both are genuine words aren’t they, which basically mean the same thing.

  • Seriously lengthily is a genuine word dude, look it up you find things like “at length” and “for a long time”.
    We can’t all be as gifted as HDM 🙂 LOL!!!

  • In Hebrew we tend to say that “whatever happens- has a goal”- perhaps now Taylor will get a chance as a cover?

  • I’ll tell you what during the pre season Bruno has been looking a lot more handy… he will be missed slightly I think but the good news is that it presents opportunities for others.

  • Yeah but dude Berner has YEARS of experience, that is VERY hard to replace. Olsson SHOULD be a star in the years to come though.
