I’m sorry, Seamus! Taylor phones Coleman to apologise for horrific tackle

Date Posted,March 30, 2017

Wales defender Neil Taylor has phoned Seamus Coleman to apologise for breaking the Everton full-back’s leg.

The Aston Villa man managed to get Coleman’s number off mutual teammate Ashley Williams before making the sorry call for the badly timed tackle.

Ireland ace Coleman is set to be out of action until next year after Taylor’s wild tackle in their World Cup qualifier last week.

Coleman suffered a double leg break, damaging his fibula and tibia after the first half out of control foul.

He required oxygen on the ground before being rushed to hospital and had surgery on his sickening injury.

Coleman is still in Dublin’s St. Vincent’s Hospital and is expected to be released on Wednesday.

Taylor saw red for the challenge and is facing a ban although FIFA are looking into increasing the suspension for the severity of the tackle.

Coleman’s Everton wages are now expected to be covered by FIFA’s Club Protection Programme until his comeback, allowing the Toffees slight relief after losing one of their key men on international duty.
