Birmingham boss Alex McLeish thinks that the international break has come at a good time for Blues as it will give time to winger Jean Beausejour to recover from a medial ligament injury.

The Chilean international missed Saturday`s defeat against Everton with the problem that he picked up at Wigan.

The 26 year old has been assessed by the Blues medical staff and they have told McLeish to be very careful with him until he makes a full recovery.

McLeish told Press Association Sport: ‘Beausejour had an injury which he further aggravated last week so he was ruled out completely for the weekend.

‘He got a nick in his medial ligament against Wigan when he came on.

‘The doctor ruled him out immediately and said ‘if you want to get anything out of this guy this season, you’ve got to be careful.’ I’ve got to respect the medical staff.

‘But hopefully the fact it is the international break will give him the chance to make a full recovery.’
