Trapattoni: Doyle injury very serious
Republic of Ireland manager Giovanni Trapattoni revealed that Kevin Doyle could miss the remainder of the Premier League season after suffering a "very serious" knee injury in their 2-1 UEFA EURO 2012 qualifying win against Macedonia.
The Wolverhampton Wanderers forward limped off early on as the Republic of Ireland moved level with Russia and Slovakia at the top of Group B and Trapattoni fears the 27-year-old may miss the rest of the campaign.
"It's his medial ligament," said Trapattoni. "I think he may be out for one or two months, so it's a very serious injury. But I hope by May or June, he can come back and we can have him for the match in Macedonia."
