Busst to write to Arsenal star

Busst to write to Arsenal star

The weekend's football has been dominated by the injury suffered by Arsenal striker Eduardo against Birmingham City on Saturday.

The pictures of the Croatian's injury brought back unhappy memories for former Coventry City defender David Busst after his broken leg at Old Trafford 12 years ago.

'I saw it on Match of the Day,' he said of the weekend incident.

'I saw Martin Taylor coming towards him, saw the foot go up and I had to look away.

'It brought back the memories. I flinched. I just looked away as soon as I saw the connection.'

Busst, who works at the City academy, added: 'I always send a "get well" message to players who have broken their legs badly and I'll be putting pen to paper for Eduardo.

'I remember how much all the letters meant to me when I was lying in hospital.'
