Watch: Sound Man Henrikh Mkhitaryan Offers Kind Message Of Support To Séamus Coleman
By Gavan Casey Updated

It's a testament to the type of character Séamus Coleman is, and his standing amongst his peers, that players are still offering him messages of support almost a fortnight after his horrific double leg-break.

Of course these have been just two weeks of the potential 60, give or take a few, which Coleman is set to lose from the prime of his career, having been injured by Neil Taylor's stupid and reckless 'tackle' during Ireland's World Cup qualifier at home to Wales.

Manchester United's Henrikh Mhkitaryan is the latest of Coleman's fellow professionals to offer the Ireland captain a message of support as he begins the long road to recovery. Speaking in a video to Manchester United's official website, Mkhitaryan said he felt sorry for the Everton right-back, and explained how - even if injuries are part of the game, there was simply no way Coleman could have been prepared for the damage he suffered on that fateful Dublin evening.

Yes, I have seen the injury to Coleman and I feel very sorry. I wish him a very quick recovery.

It was a very bad injury and when I've seen it I feel very bad about it. I want to support him, to tell him to stay strong and come back as strong as he can.

It's not nice to see. But also it's football, and danger is part of football and you have to be ready for that. Of course, not that kind of injury, but that's football. He couldn't think it's going to happen - something like that. It was like just a battle between him and the opponent and he got a very bad injury.

Mhkitaryan is doubtless one of the Premier League's good guys; Back in January, he decided to share his Premier League Goal of the Month award - for his scorpion kick versus Sunderland in December - with terminally ill young Sunderland fan Bradley Lowery, who recently led England out at Wembley.
