Sa­har: I’ll sue over ‘sprin­kler’ in­jury

The Jewish Chronicle - - Sport - By si­Mon Griver

PoRTSMoUTH striker Ben Sa­har is to sue the Moldovan Fa af­ter gash­ing his knee on a sprin­kler dur­ing Is­rael’s 2-1 win in Chisinau in a World Cup qual­i­fier last month.

The 19-year old Is­raeli, who needed 11 stitches in the wound and was un­able to play for nearly a month, says that the in­jury could have ended his ca­reer.

“There was a wa­ter sys­tem on the pitch, a sprin­kler, and I fell on it. The Is­raeli Fa are go­ing to sue and, to be hon­est, I am go­ing to sue, too,” said Sa­har. “The wor­ry­ing thing is it could have been even worse as it could have caused some long-term ef­fects. In the end, I am happy it was for only three weeks. It af­fected my avail­abil­ity for the club and those two weeks out kept me away from the team I want to play for. Now I am go­ing to sue them so we will see.”

Mean­while, Sa­har scored for Portsmouth re­serves in their 2-0 win over as­ton Villa re­serves ear­lier this week. It was the Is­raeli’s first game for Portsmouth since sus­tain­ing the knee in­jury when play­ing for Is­rael in early Septem­ber. He also made Pom­pey’s sec­ond goal for Jerome Thomas.

He re­port­edly told Is­raeli team­mates that he is an­gry with Chelsea for mak­ing life awk­ward for him at Frat­ton Park.

ear­lier this month, Chelsea re­fused to let him play for Port­mouth re­serves against Chelsea re­serves, in­vok­ing a clause in his loan con­tract that he can­not ap­pear against the Blues, thus ham­per­ing his come­back af­ter in­jury. Chelsea have re­fused to al­low him to play in Port­mouth’s Uefa Cup cam­paign so he will not be cup tied if he re­turns to Stam­ford Bridge in Jan­uary.
