Seamus Coleman is battling his way back to full fitness but admits it’s too early to say when he will be ready for a return to competitive action.
The Everton full-back suffered a horrific double leg break while representing Ireland in a World Cup qualifier against Wales almost three months ago. Following surgery, in which his leg was pinned and screwed, Coleman spent some time in his hometown of Donegal before returning to Finch Farm to start the long road back to peak fitness: "Progress is being made," he said. "I'm doing all that I'm being asked of so far and I just have to keep going that way." However, hopes of an early return were quickly dashed when Coleman went onto add: "There is no end date - I'm just wanting to tick the boxes early on and keep improving." The average recovery time for this type of injury is around 9 months, which means Coleman faces a race against time to play again this year. Jun 20 - 4:13 AM
