Injury news: Mariners star to have surgery

Central Coast Mariners confirmed defender Storm Roux has suffered a fractured fibula and ligament disruption that will require surgery in Sydney today.

It came as a result of the incident that occurred during the club’s 4-1 loss to City at AAMI Park on Sunday. 

Roux also sustained a dislocated shoulder that will be assessed later in the week.  

At approximately the 58th minute, Roux landed awkwardly and it saw the New Zealand international stretchered from the pitch and taken to hospital.

Roux, 23, stayed in Melbourne overnight with club physiotherapist Andrew Nealon and will return to Sydney this morning for immediate surgery on this right leg.
