Fulham hit with injury blow

Fulham’s major summer signing Dimitar Berbatov has picked up an injury in training and will miss games against Manchester City and Southampton as reported on goal.com.

Fulham boss Martin Jol confirmed the injury yesterday and he will certainly miss his main striker after the Bulgarian notched two goals in his first three appearances for the Whites. Thankfully though for Fulham fans it seems Berbatov’s hip injury is not serious and Jol will soon have him back.

“Unfortunately Dimitar is injured now and can’t play on Saturday so that is the disappointing thing. He will be out for the next two weeks,” said Jol.

“In his session he was looking good, as usual, and then his final shot he felt something and he had to go in and stop training. It appears he had – not a tear – but a sort of problem with his hip and upper thigh so we couldn’t take the risk to involve him against City.”
