'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Richardson & Larsson undergo groin ops

Sunderland have today confirmed that midfield pair Kieran Richardson and Sebastian Larsson will miss the rest of the season after going under the knife.

The duo have both undergone surgery following hernia's and will now miss the remainder of the campaign.

Richardson's came as a 'bit of a surprise' according to Martin O'Neill, who explained that the discomfort had only come on in the last 10 days.

Swedish international Larsson had been in pain for a fortnight though, and has been allowed to undergo the minor operation in order to recover in time for EURO 2012.

Speaking to The Official Site, Larsson said:

'I am extremely grateful to the club supporting me and giving me this opportunity to have the operation immediately.

'This means the conditions to be prepared for Euro 2012 are much better than if I had to wait until the end of the season.'

Are you boys just trying to weaken your team for the final match against Manure?

We're playing for places realistically, so it doesn't hurt to let them have the ops done ASAP so they're fit for pre-season.

If that means you are going to do a favour to Manure then it does matter. It looks as though you are not going to turn up for that match but what do you expect with - Brown, O Shea, Richardson, Bardsley etc in your ranks.

City fan per chance?! A lot of players are going to be playing for places & in the case of the ex-Utd boys, for pride against their old side. I'm confident we will put in the best performance possible to the benefit of Sunderland and Sunderland only!

wfc123 - hope you are right. Give them a good tonking ..... but not so sure about your ex Rag players .... few own goals could be on the cards. You will also have at least two penalties given against you and Cattermole sent off ...... then it will be a level playing field. These are the rules when playing the Rags.
