Séamus Coleman mental strength will help recovery, says Martin O'Neill

Everton manager Ronald Koeman has offered his thoughts to stricken Séamus Coleman and expressed his sadness at seeing the defender suffer a horrific leg break while on worldwide duty.

In the aftermath of Ireland's 0-0 draw with Wales at the Aviva Stadium on Friday, questions were raised over Taylor, his character, what type of player he is, his history of controversial tackles and how long he should be banned for, but in the midst of it all, very few pointed out Coleman's loss as a leader.

Coleman faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines - the early speculation has suggested up to six months - and that will come as a massive blow too to club manager Ronald Koeman.

He said: "I'm not exactly sure, I must admit". "I was the first one into the dressing room after the game, he was sitting on the floor with his head in his hands".

Taoiseach Enda Kenny is the latest to criticise the 28-year-old's tackle in an interview with The Irish Times . Shane Long comforted his team-mate before Coleman was stretchered off and taken straight to a local hospital.

The challenge on Coleman was not the only one that upset Ireland.

"We were close but we probably didn't have enough good chances to really deserve the three points".

"Serbia will obviously be glad that he's not playing, but we certainly feel we've got enough to go out there and overcome that".

The FAI statement said Coleman's condition "will be monitored over the coming days", adding that John O'Shea, James McCarthy, Glenn Whelan and Jonathan Walters had all been released back to their respective clubs ahead of Tuesday's home friendly against Iceland. I was just talking to Seamus, teaching him how to breathe through it.' He remembered it all.

He was visited by manager Martin O'Neill and his assistant on Friday night as graphic pictures of the damage circulated on social media. "That was successful.", O'Neill told BBC Radio 5 live on Sunday morning. It will take some time to heal. Sometimes there can be complications, other times it can be clear and it's all plain sailing'.

"Little things like that if they go your way could change a game but I don't think there was any malice in it".
