Sunderland manager Roy Keane must be blowing his heads off. Sunderland are facing relegation threats in the English Premier League this season and the former Manchester United player wants all of his players to be fit for the tough time ahead. But the Injury Gods are against Roy.
Sky Sports reports that the Black Cats are expected to miss midfielder Liam Miller for three weeks after the player returned with a calf injury that he has sustained while playing for Republic of Ireland against Brazil in an international friendly on Wednesday. Keane wasn’t available for comments but this is what Milller himself says to the Sunderland Echo:
It is a calf injury. The physio said that hopefully it wasn’t too bad, but I am looking at three weeks out, something like that. I will see the Sunderland physio in the morning, and he will assess it. I thought the match was going OK. Obviously I would have liked to have played the second half, but that is sometimes what happens. Obviously I am very unhappy with the injury. I thought it was going OK for me, and I was hoping the longer the game went on, the better I would get.
Can Sunderland cope without Miller in the coming weeks?
