The big news so far in 2018 as far as Dublin GAA is concerned is the injury to Bernard Brogan. The 2010 Footballer of the Year has been ruled out for the entire season after rupturing his ACL.
While this is an undoubted blow to Jim Gavin’s side, the depth available in the forwards ensures that the Boys in Blue are well able to cope. Naturally, many were left to question whether we have seen the last of the 33-year-old in a blue jersey given the severity of the injury. However, the Oliver Plunkett’s clubman will be keen to bounce back and play in front of Hill 16 once again.
Today, Dublin GAA have made an official statement surrounding Brogan’s injury.
Dublin Footballer Bernard Brogan’s recent knee injury has been medically diagnosed as an ACL rupture. Bernard has undergone surgery and is now in the recovery phase.
Dublin Football Team manager Jim Gavin said “On a personal level this is very frustrating for Bernard as he has played a vital role in recent team performances for both club and county. Medical Protocols for the Dublin Senior Football team have been activated to ensure that Bernard will receive the best medical care to actively assist his recovery in the weeks and months ahead. We wish Bernard a speedy recovery and look forward to seeing him back to full health in the near future.”
Let’s hope that it’s a speedy recovery for one of the finest footballers of the modern era.
