Isaksson bemoans injuries

Andreas Isaksson has cursed the misfortune which is hampering his Man City career.

Andreas Isaksson has cursed the misfortune which has prevented him getting his Manchester City career up and running.

The Swedish goalkeeper joined City over the summer from Rennes, but a foot injury suffered at the World Cup ruled him out of the start of the season.

He was then close to being available for his City debut, only to collect a knee injury on Sunday after a training ground collision with Bernardo Corradi.

Isaksson could now be sidelined for another eight weeks, leaving under-fire Stuart Pearce to rely on Nicky Weaver between the posts.

The injury nightmare is causing Isaksson some frustration, particularly as he is determined to make an impact at The City of Manchester Stadium.

"It feels very tough," Isaksson told Sportbladet.

"I had surgery, recovered and got injured again after a couple of training sessions.

"It's very tough, especially since I have just joined a new club. I want to play.

"The last year has been quite tough, to say the least, with injuries. It has been new ones all the time.

"I haven't felt any pressure, so it must be bad luck."
