Liverpool fans react on Twitter to horrific Seamus Coleman injury against Wales

By Danny Wright

Liverpool fans have cast aside their fierce rivalry with Everton to extend their support for Seamus Coleman on Twitter.

The Everton full-back suffered a horrific leg break in the second half of the Republic of Ireland’s goalless draw with Wales on Friday night.

Wales and Aston Villa defender Neil Taylor was the aggressor in the incident and he was promptly sent off by the referee for a reckless lunge which has ended Coleman’s season.

Coleman was clearly in a lot of pain on the Aviva Stadium pitch and had to be given oxygen before being stretchered off.

Such was the severity of the injury, TV producers decided not to show any replays of the incident.

Liverpool and Everton meet at Anfield when the international break is over on April 1 and the Reds faithful have shown a lot of class in sending their best wishes to the Everton 28-year-old.

Here is a selection of tweets from Liverpool supporters:

The Irish right-back was a mainstay in Ronald Koeman’s side this season and he has played in 28 games in all competitions contributing with four goals and four assists.

Everton will now have to plan for the rest of the season, and probably the rest of the year, without the experienced international as they looked to qualify for European football.

In other Liverpool news, the club are reportedly in a three-horse race to sign this £13million-rated defender.
