New Zealand international midfielder Matt Garbett could be sidelined for up to four weeks after suffering a shove in the back in his latest game for Dutch side NAC Breda.
Garbett (21) was sent sprawling early in NAC’s game against Helmond Sport, and teammates quickly showed concern as he clutched his collarbone.
Clearly in discomfort, Garbett left the pitch with a trainer.
Dutch news reports have now suggested the injury was a dislocated shoulder, and Garbett could be out of action for three or four weeks.
