Highlanders defender Andrew Tandi suffered a fibula fracture from a crude tackle by Dynamos winger Bill Antonio during a Castle Lager Premier Soccer League match played at Barbourfields Stadium on Sunday.
In an update, Highlanders confirmed the diagnosis and added that Tandi is currently under specialist care. Bosso said:
Andrew Tandi Injury: Update The X-ray has confirmed a fibula fracture, and he is currently under specialist care. We wish him a speedy recovery.
According to an online source, the fibula is a bone in the lower leg stretching from the knee to the ankle and visible from the outside.
A fibular fracture is a break to the fibula caused by a forceful impact that results in injury.
It can also happen when there’s more pressure or stress on the bone than it can handle.
The fracture may cause the bone to break into two pieces or several smaller pieces.
Meanwhile, Antonio has issued a public apology to Tandi and wished him a speedy recovery.
