Worrying end-of-season injury strikes Athletic Club stalwart for second successive year

During Athletic Club's final match of the 2022-23 season, against Real Madrid, Youri Berchis suffered a broken leg after a strong challenge from Dani Carvajal. He missed the entire pre-season, returning approximately three months later. Unfortunately, a similar fate could befall him this time.

Berchich injured his shoulder after falling during the team's 1-0 win over Rayo Vallecano on Saturday, and Athletic confirmed he had suffered a dislocation. He is awaiting further evaluation, but surgery is likely a serious possibility, meaning he will be laid off for an extended period.

Berchich has been a key player for Athletic Bilbao since joining from Paris Saint-Germain in 2018, and is sure to continue moving forward. However, he has had bad luck over the past 12 months, and for the second summer in a row, he will have a serious injury problem. The only positive thing is that he shouldn't miss many matches, if any at all.
