He said: "I did not believe him when he thought he had broken it. I was very surprised when I found out that he had. He didn't cry or anything, so I thought he must be okay. I just thought he had bruised it or something.
"It is really nice of the club to have done though, we both really appreciate it."
Jermaine Wright added: "It is just one of those things, it is very unfortunate. We have given him a nice gesture and I hope he gets better soon. I just want to make it clear that it wasn't me that kicked the ball, but I will find out who did it for him!"
