TEIXEIRA RULED OUT FOR SEASON

15 April 2015


Brighton & Hove Albion's on-loan Liverpool midfielder Joao Teixeira has been ruled out for the remainder of the season, after scans showed he suffered a broken leg in last night's game against Huddersfield Town.

Teixeira was taken off on a stretcher during the goalless draw at the Amex; an X-ray taken at Brighton's Royal Sussex County Hospital after the game showed a break to his leg just above the ankle.

Manager Chris Hughton commented, "Our thoughts are with Joao - as this is a real blow to him after such a good season for the club - and we all wish him a speedy recovery and return to action.

"He's been an important player for the club this season, both before and after I came to the club, and I would like to thank him for his efforts during his time on loan here, and also Liverpool for allowing him to come."

Teixeira will leave fans with fond memories as he proved a hit with the fans as he hit six goals in 27 Championship starts and five substitute appearances.
