Neil Taylor: Aston Villa safeguard ‘urgently sad’ for Seamus Coleman harm

Neil Taylor is “urgently sad” for the handle that broke Seamus Coleman’s leg, says Aston Villa manager Steve Bruce.

Grains left-back Taylor, 28, was sent off for the test amid the World Cup qualifier with the Republic of Ireland in Dublin on 24 March.

“He’s profoundly disillusioned – nobody needs to see a kindred expert seriously harmed,” Bruce told BBC WM 95.6.

Everton guard Coleman, 28, required surgery on his fibula and tibia after the 0-0 draw.

Taylor helped Swansea win advancement to the Premier League in 2011 and moved to Villa from south Wales in January.

“I’ve just been working with him for a month and he’s urgently sad for what’s happened – every one of our musings at Villa are with Seamus,” said Bruce.

“Sadly these things happen – you become involved with the warmth of the fight and the pace of the amusement is savage, particularly at universal level.”

The Villa manager had direct involvement of a comparative damage when Coventry City safeguard David Buust gravely softened his leg up a diversion against Manchester United at Old Trafford in April 1996.

Also, he says Taylor needs to attempt to put any negative contemplations about the occurrence with Coleman insane when he next plays.

“That is the enormous thing Neil should confront himself – when you’re in the stream of the diversion and go into a handle, you don’t consider it,” Bruce included.

“No one but Neil can answer that and once he gets over it and gets back playing, I’m certain he’ll be fine.”

Taylor has been prohibited for Wales’ next qualifier in Serbia in June, yet could have that stretched out after Fifa opened procedures against the player – a move Bruce depicted as “cruel”.1
