Stoke City Boss Offers to Help as Kory Roberts Suffers Suspected Double Leg Break

Stoke City manager Gary Rowett has spoken to the press following his side's comfortable three-nil pre-season victory over Walsall, and discussed the injury to Saddlers defender Kory Roberts, who suffered a suspected double leg break late in the second-half, revealing that he will be contacting the club to offer any help he can.
Rowett, who had just witnessed his side win by three-goals-to-nil as Bojan, Ibrahim Afellay, and Peter Crouch, all found the back of the net, admitted that he'd have happily taken a defeat if it meant 20-year-old, Birmingham-born Roberts could have come out of the match unscathed.

The manager, who was speaking to several members of the local media, said; "There was the injury in the second half, which is not what you want to see. I’d have lost the game 5-0 for the lad not to have broken his leg, which it looks like he has done. My heart goes out to him. It’s a real shame and we will try to help Walsall out how we can because I think it’s a very good club for us to form links to."
