THE MOTHERWELL manager, Mark McGhee, says that he is ‘very concerned’ about an injury to Donegal man Carl McHugh that has been described as ‘really grim’.
McHugh, 23, who hails from Lettermacaward, sustained the facial injury on August 6 when he collided with Dean Hawkshaw on the first day of the Ladbrokes Premiership season.
McHugh required stitches in the wound and suffered a delayed concussion.
The player took to Twitter to show a graphic image of the nature of the injury, but the tweet has since been removed.[adrotate group=”80″]
McHugh joined Motherwell in the summer from Plymouth Argyle and McGhee’s assessment is worrying.
“It is really grim,” said McGhee this week. “He is having a really difficult time and we are very concerned about that.
“It has not made much progress. It is just not getting better. We are doing everything we can.[adrotate group=”82”]
“There is no time given to this injury. They don’t say it ‘will take six weeks or eight weeks’, they actually say ‘it could take six weeks, eight weeks, it could take six months’.
That is the nature of it and we just hope it doesn’t take six months obviously.
“It is a complicated and nasty condition that he has ended up with. He is seeing a guy in Dublin actually this week to put his mind at rest.”[adrotate group=”83”] Tags:
