Socking it to metatarsal injuries

A LOUGHBOROUGH graduate believes he has lifted the curse of the broken metatarsal with a revolutionary new sock.
The likes of David Beckham, Wayne Rooney, Steven Gerrard, Roy Keane, Xabi Alonso and Michael Owen have all ­suffered the injury, but thanks to the Metasox invention from Chris ­Niesiolowski the bone fracture may become a rare thing.
The brainchild from Chris, who broke a metatarsal while an academy player at Derby County, sees football socks padded with rubber silicon pads.
The footwear is already being used at Wolves and Barnsley.
Wolves physio Alan ­Peacham said: “They’re like shin pads for feet.
“It’s not just about players being available for matches – a lot of potential training days are missed through bruised feet.
“A lot of the players have welcomed them. Jelle van Damme wore it on international duty with Belgium.”
