David Moyes has confirmed that Jack Rodwell has suffered another hamstring blow, and will not be able to compete at Euro 2012!
Our Jack has had a difficult season since being touted as a £20m target for Manure, he has been dogged by injury and poor form but thought he had an outside chance to make the tournament in Poland and Ukraine, but will be ruled out for the remainder of the campaign due to a recurring injury.
Moyesy said: 'Jack Rodwell has pulled his hamstring again training.'
'He trained Saturday morning and felt his hamstring again. He had a scan. It's a grade one which is small. But in the circumstances two or three times now. We are trying to send him to Germany for treatment.'
'Dr Müller-Wohlfahrt is away this week and because he is the Bayern Munich doctor he has a very big week next week because of their Champions League semi-final. So trying to get hold of him will be the hardest thing certainly in the short term.'
'I would advise him to concentrate on next season because Jack has probably missed six months with hamstring injuries so we have to get him working on whatever work programme they recommend him to do.'
Hopefully, Our Jack will take Moyesy's advice?
