Papadopoulos blow spells trouble for Roar

-

Brisbane Roar’s already underfire Greek international has been cruelly dealt a season-ending injury during a routine training session.

A statement released by the club announced the injury on Tuesday afternoon.

‘During a non-competitive training drill, Papadopoulos fractured his left ankle and will undergo surgery tomorrow in Brisbane.

Everyone involved with the Club wishes Avram a speedy recovery and we hope to see him back playing football in Roar Orange as soon as possible.’

Losing Papadopoulos is a huge blow to Brisbane’s late-season push towards the top six with fellow first-choice defender Luke DeVere already sidelined with a knee injury.

Papadopoulos has been one of Roar’s best this season from his centre-back position and has also netted an impressive four goals across 15 games to be Brisbane’s second highest goal-scorer this season.

Last week Papadopoulos was handed a two-and-a-half year suspended jail term in his native Greece for illegally betting on matches during his time at Olympiacos.

John Aloisi remained coy on the matter following Roar’s 1-0 win over Adelaide last Saturday but did praise the courage shown by his player to front up and play during testing times.

“Look he’s a guy that doesn’t open up too much so he hasn’t told me that he’s struggling,” he said.

“I’ve spoken to him quite a few times this week just to make sure that he’s ok and that I’m there to support him, but of course when your name’s being thrown around in something that’s not great, especially back in Greece and then a little bit here it’s going to affect him a little bit.

“But he showed courage and guts to perform like he did, I thought defensively he was superb.”

Roar will now be sweating on the fitness of one of their two available centre-backs Jade North who succumbed to a calf injury and was substituted in the second half of Saturday’s win.
