Auxerre rocked by injury to new signing

July 31, 2008

Jeremy Berthod will be sidelined for about three months after suffering knee ligament damage in a pre-season match for new side Auxerre.

The centre-back, a summer signing from Monaco, sustained the injury to his left knee during a friendly against Charleroi on Tuesday.

His leg will be in plaster for a month and then he will need to do two months of recovery work before he can resume first-team action.
