Bolton's Cahill out with blood clot
Monday February 8th 2010
Bolton defender Gary Cahill may be out for the rest of the season with a blood clot in his arm, severely denting his chances of being included in England's World Cup squad.
The 24-year-old centre back was taken ill on Friday and missed his team's 0-0 draw with Fulham.
Bolton manager Owen Coyle said: "Gary suffered a pain in his arm and it became severely swollen on the day of the game.
"There was no way he could play so we took him straight off to hospital. It turns out he had a blood clot in his arm, so he is going to be out for a number of months."
Coyle added: "The clot needed to be resolved and in doing that you need the medication. It follows you can't play.
"As disappointed as we are, at 24, Gary has a marvellous career ahead of him. I believe he would have made the World Cup for the summer but we have to make sure first of all he recovers from this blood clot."
