Rotherham United defender, Stephen Brogan is a bit fed up of people asking him about his broken leg. And although he appreciates the concern he told The Advertiser ‘I want people talking about me for the right reasons.’

Eighteen months ago, the twenty-one year old broke his leg while playing against MK Dons but he has now gone through rehabilitation and wants to put it all behind him. ‘It’s a bit annoying when you get asked ‘how’s your leg’ all the time. I want to be known as ‘Brogan the footballer’ and not ‘Brogan who broke his leg.’

‘I’m happy to be back playing,’ he said. ‘Pre-season has gone alright although it was a bit tough because my body had to get used to it and I’ve had a few problems here and there but nothing too bad. I didn’t play against Manchester City because I had a hamstring injury and it was a setback. It’s good to be part of things again and not just the one who is hanging around.

‘We’ve got a strong squad and we are one of the favourites to go up and rightly so. I think we will be in the top three. I want to get back and prove to myself, and everyone else, that I should be in the team and the only way to do that is on the pitch.’
