Jack Rodwell to miss Euro 2012

Everton manager David Moyes has confirmed that midfielder Jack Rodwell has suffered another hamstring blow, and will not be able to compete at Euro 2012.

The promising talent was an outside chance to make the tournament in Poland and Ukraine, but will be ruled out for the remainder of the campaign due to a recurring injury.

“Jack Rodwell has pulled his hamstring again training,’’ Moyes confirmed to The Telegraph.

“He trained Saturday morning and felt his hamstring again. He had a scan. It’s a grade one which is small. But in the circumstances two or three times now. We are trying to send him to Germany for treatment.

“Dr Müller-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.

“I would advise him to concentrate on next season because 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,” the Scot confessed.
