Andrei Shevchenko's surgery on his facial injury was a success with Milan hoping their star striker will be able to figure in the UEFA Champions
League second leg with Manchester United. The Ukrainian suffered a double cheekbone and eye-socket fracture during the Serie A match with Cagliari at
Having been immediately ruled out of the Old Trafford clash on Wednesday, Shevchenko could yet play in the return game wearing a protective mask.
However, the psychological effects of the injury cannot be understated and Milan have refused to openly discuss a comeback date for the European
Footballer of the Year.
I wouldn't take the risk as one whack on it could put him out for a long time or damage him permantly. These sort of injurys are well dangerous and he
shouldn't play untill it has healed properly or enough not to be dangerous.
yer, its like, he could play. but if something was to happen, its bad enough running about wearing a mask, but if something was to happen, it could
ruin him. and if it did serious permanent damage, you cant take those type of chances
i think alot of people are seeing it as a minor injury but its been known 2 nock players off form with shocks like that, look at matt jansen at
rovers, he had a seirious life threttening injury to the hed a few seasons ago and has stil yet to return to form (if ever)
