Steven Gerrard’s ankle is infected following a kick to it in training in mid-week, it seemed to be healing but it swelled up on Saturday morning requiring treatment and further surgery this week.
I had a similar injury myself years ago when I bought a new pair of Doc Martin’s shoes and new socks in a bid to impress the ladies. It back-fired, the shoes cut into my heel and I bled, plus I soon started limping.
I had to be admitted to Middlesex General Hospital and I was diagnosed with early gangrene, I was admitted and immediately put on a drip with anti-biotics, they cleaned out the wound (agony) and I was discharged after four days. The reason the doctors gave me for the infection was that I had worn new socks and the manufacturer’s dye had got into my blood-stream.
I reckon the same thing may have happened to Liverpool’s Captain. You jog out for a training session in clean kit, brand new gear and bang, you get a cut to your foot, open wound and the dye seeps in causing an infection.
It took me a week or more to get back on my feet again and I am sure Stevie will too.
