World’s Football governing body, FIFA is investigating Seamus Coleman’s leg breaking incident to see if Wales full-back Neil Taylor was at fault for the tackle.
The Swansea defender was sent off in Republic of Ireland’s 0-0 draw with Wales inlast Friday’s World Cup qualifier in Dublin and will miss the next qualifier of Wales against Serbia in June.
Coleman, 28, was stretched off after the tackle and was taken to the hospital requiring a surgery which ended up successfully.
Captain of Wales, Ashley Williams revealed recently that his player, Neil Taylor wanted to see the Everton defender in hospital and even sent him a text message from the Aviva Stadium.
He told the Everton website;
Neil was gutted. He was sitting on the floor virtually in tears.”
“Even people who don’t know Seamus like I do were gutted.
“He asked me to check if it would be OK to go to see Seamus in hospital. He got his number off me and sent him a text straight away.
“When I found out it was a broken leg it made me feel sick inside because it’s someone who I like so much and is one of my mates.”
FIFA has indicated they are looking into the incident to reveal what really happened and has also told Everton they will take care of the wages of the Irish till he gets back to the field.
