Unfortunately I will not play today agains Manchester United at Old Trafford. The thigh has received rough treatment in recent weeks, therefore it is determined that I should not play the game today so I can participate in the hard program that is coming in December. I hate not playing, but this is unfortunately the case today. But I’m going to sit in the away section and give my contribution from there. The disappointment is huge, but the risk is so high that it could be a set back and then it will be a long-term injury. But I’ll see all of you in the away end and off course, next weekend, but then on the pitch at Ewood Park!
