Villa's Reo-Coker: Bouma injury had me in tears

Aston Villa skipper Nigel Reo-Coker was upset for Wilfred Bouma after the defender dislocated his ankle in yesterday's Intertoto Cup victory over Odense.

Ro-Coker told AVTV Online: "These thinks happen in football. It was a horrific incident and when I saw the injury I was close to tears. I had to move away.

"It is awful when it's one of your own team-mates. He's a great guy and my thoughts go out to him and his family.

"He will get through this because he is a strong character - one of the strongest in the dressing room. He'll come back stronger than ever!"
