LUFC Bromby thankful for the support

Leeds United defender Leigh Bromby has thanked the fans and the club for their support after suffering a serious knee injury in the penultimate game of the season.

Bromby suffered a ruptured patella tendon in the game at Cardiff City after going down unchallenged and the Leeds defender has been overwhelmed by the support shown to him by the Leeds fans since suffering the injury.

Speaking on the official website, Bromby said, "I'd like to say a massive thank-you to everyone. I've had well wishes from fans, the players, and the staff, it means a lot.
I think people knew it was serious the way it happened, but it's great to see the support I've had from everyone. It's a difficult time, but this has really lifted me."


Bromby required oxygen on the pitch following the injury and he has now expected to be out until at least 2013.

The injury has come as a double blow to Bromby who looked to be getting his Leeds United career back on track following the arrival of Neil Warnock as Leeds boss.

The two had worked together previously at Sheffield United and having made just six appearances this season under former boss Simon Grayson, Bromby was including in the squad for Warnock`s first game in charge at Portsmouth.

Bromby was called upon as an early replacement for the injured Alex Bruce and he kept his place in the starting line-up for the next game against Southampton.

Unfortunately for Bromby, he suffered a calf injury early in the game against Southampton, which forced him off and he missed the following six games.

He returned and started five of the next six games having worked his way into the plans of Warnock for next season, before suffering his knee injury.

The 31 year old is now starting his recuperation after undergoing surgery recently.
