“Murphy’s injury looked serious, and his knee is badly swollen” – Declan Bonner

first_imgFormer Donegal manager Declan Bonner has said the injury sustained by Michael Murphy looked serious, and confirmed that his knee is badly swollen as a result of the injury. Bonner was on the side-line last night in his capacity as a coach for St Michael’s when the injury occurred to the Donegal captain in an All-County league clash between St Michael’s and Glenswilly.The 1992 All-Ireland winner said that it seemed an innocuous incident at first, but that it became quickly apparent he had suffered a nasty injury. Bonner was speaking this afternoon on Highland Radio, where he was commentating on Donegal’s All-Ireland MFC semi-final with Galway at Croke Park.Bonner said, “I was at the match last night, because I’m involved with St Michael’s, and the incident looked fairly innocuous initially.“There was a very heavy shower just before half-time, and conditions were difficult, Michael went down and he seemed to be in a lot of pain. “I touched base with him today, and he said it’s very swollen, he has to wait for the swelling to go down before he can get a scan on it.“It looks like he will be out for quite a while, it’s a huge blow for Glenswilly ahead of their resumption of the Donegal SFC, but hopefully he hasn’t done his ACL.“He’s going to be out for a while, but we wish him well, it didn’t look good, but here’s hoping it’s nothing too serious.“He’s in Croke Park today, he’s a great supporter of underage football, and it’s brilliant to see him down here supporting our minor side.”“Murphy’s injury looked serious, and his knee is badly swollen” – Declan Bonner was last modified: August 21st, 2016 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Declan BonnerInjuryKneeMichael MurphynewsSportSwollenlast_img read more
