Trapattoni: Doyle injury 'serious'

Published Add your comment

Republic of Ireland manager Giovanni Trapattoni revealed that striker Kevin Doyle could miss the remainder of the Barclays Premier League season after suffering a "very serious" knee injury in the 2-1 Euro 2012 qualifying win against Macedonia.

The Wolves forward limped off early on as the Republic moved level with Russia and Slovakia at the top of Group B and Trapattoni fears the 27-year-old may miss the rest of the campaign.

The Italian said: "It's his medial ligament. I think he may be out for one or two months, so it's a very serious injury. But I hope by May or June, he can come back and we can have him for the match in Macedonia."
