Jack Rodwell has been told to forget about competing in Euro 2012 by his manager David Moyes. Rodwell suffered another setback to his recovery with a new grade one tear in his hamstring.
Those looking at 2012 euro free betting note how The 21-year-old has won two caps for England and if fit would stand a real chance of being on the plane this summer, but Moyes has suggested focusing on being ready for next season. The Everton boss said: “I would advise him to concentrate on next season”
“Jack has probably missed six months with hamstring injuries, so we have to get him working on whatever work programme they recommend him to do.” He added.
Rodwell had played the final two games of Fabio Capello’s time in charge. If he wasn’t selected for the trip to Poland and Ukraine the Everton youngster was in line to play in Great Britain Olympic Games team, however after this latest injury it is unlikely he will feature in either.
The midfielder has played just five times in five months, something which obviously concerns Everton as they plan to send him German specialist Hans Muller-Wohlfahrt.
The Everton boss said: “He trained Saturday morning and felt his hamstring again. He had a scan. It’s a grade one [tear] which is small. We are trying to send him to Germany for treatment.
Moyes then added: “Dr Muller-Wohlfahrt is away this week and because he is the Bayern Munich doctor, he has a very big week next week because of their Champions League semi-final. So trying to get hold of him will be the hardest thing, certainly in the short term.”
Rodwell will obviously be unavailable for Everton’s FA Cup semi-final on Saturday against Liverpool. The Toffees are in a great run of form and will be looking to that into the game at Wembley.
