O'Shea suffers injury blow

Published Add your comment

Defender John O'Shea is to return to Wearside from Sunderland's training camp in Germany after being ruled out of the remainder of the tour through injury.

The 30-year-old Republic of Ireland international will head back to England on Wednesday after tweaking a muscle during his debut for the club against Arminia Bielefeld on Sunday.

Manager Steve Bruce told the club's official website, "There's no point in taking risks during pre-season. John isn't going to play against Hannover or Monchengladbach, so we thought it would be easier if he flew home early to rest up and he can come back stronger when we return from Germany."
