Perth Glory captain and Matildas forward Sam Kerr has been ruled out for the season following a ruptured ligament in her foot.
Kerr sustained the injury in the 20th minute of the Glory’s clash with Brisbane Roar at Suncorp Stadium on Sunday.
“To say that I’m bitterly disappointed is an understatement.” said Kerr.
“I worked hard after undergoing surgery to my left knee at the end of last season and now this happens.”
“I’m thankful however, that it’s happened now and I have every chance to recover in time for the Rio Olympic qualifiers in March.”
“I would like to wish my teammates all the best for the remainder of the season and hope they take the positive energy from Sunday’s win into the rest of the season,” she said.
Kerr has scored one goal this season in four of the five W-League matches for Perth.
