Jonathan Hogg calls himself a lucky man after returning to action following potential career ending injury

Huddersfield Town’s Jonathan Hogg has told the Yorkshire Post that he thinks he is a lucky man after suffering an injury which could have ended his career.

The 28-year-old midfielder had to be stretchered off during the Terriers’ 4-0 loss to Bristol City last month following a collision with Mark Hudson, with many fearing for the worst after scans revealed that he suffered a fracture to the spine. One doctor even told Hogg that the injury may mean that he would be unable to play football at a professional level again.

But those fears were completely unfounded as just a few weeks after being told he may never play again, Hogg was able to start in the match against Norwich City and was able to put in a man of the match performance as they ran out 3-0 winners. Now though he is looking to move from the injury and help Huddersfield get promoted to the Premier League.

He said: “I’m a lucky boy to be out there because when the doctors said it was a fracture in my spine I feared the worst,”

“For the boss to show a bit of faith in me was encouraging. Hopefully I paid him back.”

“It felt worrying – I’d never felt pain like it,”

“I had a neck brace on which wasn’t too good – I didn’t sleep too much with that on. As soon as I got home with the missus and the kids it was fantastic for me. That took my mind off it a bit.”
