In light of the flood of people pointing out the injury record of the lad, I have a genuine question.
Do we have anybody here on the forum with some medical knowledge or specifically medical knowledge in the field of sports that could tell us what type of injuries are indicative of being injury prone and which ones are just bad luck (assuming a broken bone after a very though chalenge is not the same as a recurring hamstring or something like that)?
I know the average sports fan will associate repeating muscle injuries with being prone to injury but I have no idea how accurate this is.
No medical expert but I viewit this way
Eample 1 Joe Gomez. Not injury prone. His injuries in his career are long term and picked up in the process of playing, ligament or bone injury for example
Example 2; Keita/Matip Injury prone.That is to say cznt play more then 3 games in a row without picking up whats termed " a niggle" That is feeling of any little pain or pull in any muscle particularly groins hammers quads.
In example 2 I personally wonder how much is in the head. Feel a little strsin after kicking or running and then decide to look after themselves for a while.
I know this, no Gerry Byrnes play the game now
