The Central Coast Mariners can today inform Members and supporters that 23-year-old defender Storm Roux has suffered a fractured fibula and ligament disruption that will require surgery today in Sydney as a result of the incident that occurred last night at AAMI Park. Roux also sustained a dislocated shoulder that will be assessed later in the week.
At approximately the 58th minute against Melbourne City, Roux landed awkwardly in defence that saw the New Zealand International stretchered from the pitch and taken to hospital.
Roux stayed in Melbourne overnight with Club Physiotherapist Andrew Nealon and will return to Sydney this morning for immediate surgery on this right leg.
The Central Coast Mariners will provide an update on the condition on Storm Roux following his surgery that will determine the duration he will remain sidelined.
The Central Coast Mariners would like to thank the overwhelming support that Storm has received from Mariners supporters and the football community alike.
