Brighton’s boss Roberto De Zerbi confirms ‘worrying’ injury blow as he provides ‘heartbreaking’ update on Solly March after tough Man City clash…

Roberto De Zerbi once again found himself bemoaning the string of injuries that have plagued his team, as he disclosed that Solly March is set for an extended spell on the sidelines. The injury occurred as March appeared to awkwardly twist his knee deep into stoppage time, and he had to be stretchered off the field, leaving his manager perplexed.

De Zerbi remarked, “This season, it feels like we are participating in an entirely different sport, and the number of injured players keeps growing. What’s particularly disheartening today is the likelihood of losing March for a significant duration.”

Brighton had an impressive campaign last season, securing a place in the Europa Conference League as a result. However, the additional fixtures have taken their toll on the squad, and De Zerbi is well aware that the increased demands are starting to affect his team.

In the same match, Danny Welbeck also had to leave the field early due to a muscle injury, which De Zerbi confirmed. Expressing his frustration, he stated, “It’s tough because we lost two crucial players.”

He went on to emphasize the challenges they face, especially with an upcoming game against Ajax, a pivotal encounter, and the absence of key players like Pervis Estupinan, Tariq Lamptey, March, and Welbeck.

De Zerbi acknowledged the need for additional squad depth, as they are still adapting to the demands of European competition. Finding a solution to contend in all competitions has become imperative.

March has been a standout performer under De Zerbi, and the prospect of losing him for an extended period is a significant setback. It’s worth noting that March had previously suffered a severe knee injury, damaging his anterior cruciate ligament in 2015, causing him to miss the remainder of the 2015-16 season.
