McCarthy Confirms McGoldrick Out for Season
Friday, 23rd Feb 2018 11:41

Town boss Mick McCarthy has confirmed striker David McGoldrick will be out for the rest of the season after tearing a tendon in his groin in training earlier in the week. The 30-year-old could have played his last game for the Blues with his contract up at the end of the campaign.

“I don’t think he’ll be operated on but it will keep him out for about 10 weeks so that’s him finished for the season,” McCarthy told iFollow Ipswich.

“He’s been a big player for us and the injury situation has been very unfortunate for him and the team. We have good physios here and we’ll have him up and running as soon as possible.”

Regarding McGoldrick’s future, he added: “It’s a difficult one when you’re nearing the end of your contract and you’re injured.

“It’s open for both parties so it’s down to Didz and the club to have a chat and we’ll see what happens.

“He needs to get his injury sorted first and then him and his representatives will see what the situation is.”

What do they do in training to get so many injuries

Bye Bye thanks for the memories, just as well mine is sharp.

good question Matt - it seems too many this year alone to be a coincidence.

BlueHarwich added 11:55 - Feb 23
He looked injured last Sunday the way he played!

What a joke we are, reports of 11 million offered for him 2 seasons ago by Leicester now we're letting him walk! Fast becoming the laughing stock of English football!!

Amazed he's made it this far in the season without a serious injury...maybe that's why nobody came in for him in January.

McGoldrick, Gerken, Smith, Bishop, Adeyemi, Hyam, Dozzell, and Huws have all suffured long term injuries this season I struggle to see how this is coincidence, something clearly is not right and needs looking at.

Sorry but can't see the club renewing his contract. Talented? Yes. Injury Prone? Yes.

Well, what a surprise!

Gone are the days when i feel this is a big deal

I expect he’ll be straining to sign a new contract if it’s offered to him now. I don’t think many clubs would be willing to take a gamble on a 30 year old with his injury record (other than town).
Let him go as he doesn’t play enough games for to make any significant difference. Not an out and out striker anymore, lost his pace, can he actually turn a game our way these days? The odd good game he has is just not enough, I’d rather see Downes playing just behind a front two than him.
Cardiff fans chanting his name on Wednesday, I wonder if they want him now.

I'd let him go in the summer. A high earner whos megs have gone, to fragile.

That 10k a week pays for a decent striker or a Kieffer Moore.

afcfee added 13:30 - Feb 23
We never got offered £11 million Leicester enquired and we said around 7 million.

therein61 added 16:59 - Feb 23
He's a big player when fit!! but as he is one of our slowest why does our great leader insist on pushing him into wide positions, and re the Leicester offer whatever it was we should have let him go how many games has he played since!!??
