Stoke goalkeeper Butland faces six weeks out with injury

Sports

November 16, 2017

LONDON: Stoke City goalkeeper Jack Butland thinks he will miss no more than six weeks after breaking his finger on England duty but assistant manager Mark Bowen says they will not rush him back into action.

Butland picked up the injury in training ahead of England’s friendly with world champions Germany last week.“He seems to think the time limit, at the very worst, will be around six weeks, but if it manages to knit itself together, he could be back in around three or four weeks,” Bowen told the club’s website (www.stokecityfc.com).

He added that it was always better to be cautious in dealing with hand injuries for goalkeepers. “Because the last thing you want to do is to put the problem at further risk.“We will give it time and then Jack will strap it up and see how it feels — at this early stage we are loathed to put a definitive time scale on it.”
