The 19-year-old collided with Luciano Becchio after the Leeds forward had equalised Wade Elliott's opener for Birmingham.

The injury will rule him out for the rest of the season and Clark, who heard the player's leg break from the bench, said the team were deeply upset by the injury.

"It took the gloss off a fantastic performance," said Clark. "Will's young team-mates and friends are distraught, they were in tears out there.

"I said, 'Let's try and win the game for Will'. We couldn't quite do it but I thought we deserved to do so.

"We will give him as much care and support as possible and have him back fit and strong for next season.

"We should be celebrating a fantastic performance by my young players, but this is a real downer.

"I heard the snap and was hoping it was a shin pad. It was an innocuous one with two players going for the ball."

f Klopp is available and willing to go there, they have to sign him up. Far better manager than Rodgers. The reason Liverpool fail in so many big games is the inflexible nature of their manager and his inability to find strikers who fit into his inflexible style of play. A feature of nearly every game that the team comes up short is the way the opposition midfield appears to overpower them. It's too easy.

est player award should not go to a player who's second best at all the importent categories (i.e goals, assists etc) just because his team is at the top. If you are not first you are last; if you're second you are the first loser ( looking at you Hazard). David De Gea for POTY.
