Gary Caldwell Out For 5 Months


Wigan Athletic defender Gary Caldwell is facing the prospect of being out of action for up to five months following an operation on his left hip last week.

The inspirational defender who made a telling difference to the Latics defensive organisation following his January move from Celtic has been carrying his injury for a while and he is also facing another operation on his right hip which will keep him sidelined for quite a while.

Caldwell says: 'Experts say I'll be out for between three and five months'

'Hopefully, the right hip won't be as bad as the left hip and I can push towards being out for just three months.

'It all depends on how quickly my body heals. I will definitely miss the start of the season with Wigan as well as Scotland's friendly against Sweden in August. I'll also miss our opening two European Championship qualifiers against Lithuania and Liechtenstein at the start of September.

'It will be touch and go for our next double header away to the Czech Republic and at home to Spain in October. I'm hoping to be back playing for Wigan by then, so who knows? If I hit the ground running I might just be in contention for those crucial two qualifiers.

'It's not an ideal start to the new season but I thought it was better to get the work done during the summer so I could finally put my hip problems behind me after a frustrating year.'


Caldwell is joined by Titus Bramble on the long term injury list giving Latics boss Roberto Martinez with a central defensive nightmare for the new season just a week after the old season has finished
