Coleman is ‘still pretty down’ after horror injury, says Ireland boss O’Neill

Date Posted,March 26, 2017

Martin O’Neill has revealed Republic of Ireland skipper Seamus Coleman is “still pretty down” as he comes to terms with the horrific leg fracture which has ruined his World Cup qualification dream.

The 28-year-old Everton full-back remained in hospital in Dublin on Monday two days after undergoing surgery to pin the tibia and fibula in his right leg.

The bones snapped in a challenge by Wales’ Neil Taylor during the previous night’s 0-0 draw at the Aviva Stadium.

And O’Neill was asked about Coleman during his pre-match press conference for Tuesday’s friendly against Iceland.

“I think he’s just beginning to come to terms with it. I saw him yesterday and he’s still pretty down about it,” O’Neill revealed.

“He’s not in as much pain, the operation went very well and it’s just a matter of coming to terms with it.”
