Everton are dealt a major blow as Sean Dyche confirms Seamus Coleman is OUT for the remainder of the season with a ‘ligament injury’… 24 hours after the defender assured fans he would be ‘back soon’
- The 34-year-old defender picked up a nasty injury against Leicester on Monday
- Coleman had hoped to be back soon to take part in Everton’s relegation scrap
- But Sean Dyche was quick to dampen expectations after further assessements
Sean Dyche has confirmed that Seamus Coleman is unlikely to feature for Everton for the rest of the season, just one day after the Toffees captain told fans that he would ‘be back soon’.
Speaking ahead of the Premier League weekend, which will see his side meet Brighton on Monday, Sean Dyche said that although there was some ‘good news’ in his prognosis, Coleman would need a spell on the sidelines.
‘[The injury] is still going to keep him out,’ the manager said.
‘It’s still a ligament injury that needs sorting out, but it’s not [what] everyone feared: ACL.
‘So that’s good news and good news for him.
When asked if Coleman was likely to return before May 28, Dyche confirmed: ‘Doubt it. I don’t think so, no.’
