Blood Clot puts Cahill Out for Season


Bolton Defender Gary Cahill has been ruled out for the rest of the season it has emerged.  The Wanderers’ star player has a blood clot in his arm which will keep him out of action for months.

Gary Cahill was withdrawn late from the side who faced Fulham at the weekend with what was initially believed to be a shoulder injury. However, the news has now broken that Gary Cahill will miss the rest of the season as Bolton look to beat the drop.

Manager Owen Coyle said: “Gary suffered a pain in his arm and it became severely swollen.”
“It turns out he had a blood clot in his arm, so he is going to be out for a number of months.”

The news will come as a massive blow to both Cahill and Bolton Wanderers.  The defender had been heavily linked with the England squad for this years World Cup in South Africa but the dream appears over.  Bolton Wanderers will have to face the next 15 league games without their star defender who is also top scorer at the club this season. The mountain Bolton must climb has just grown a little bit higher.

Bolton will now have little option but to struggle through the rest of the season with the recently out of favour Andy O’Brien and Danny Shittu along with the newly reformed Zat Knight who appears to have undergone somewhat of a resurgence in form in recent games.  Further bad news for the Wanderers is the news that Andy O’Brien will be unavailable for Tuesdays clash with Manchester City after coming off with a calf injury against Fulham.
