Ipswich Town manager Mick McCarthy has confirmed to the official club website that David McGoldrick’s season has been ended early because of injury. The Republic of Ireland international forward is out of contract at Portman Road at the end of this current season.
Earlier this season, Mcgoldrick tore a tendon in training which has meant he is ruled out for a minimum of three months. Whilst his campaign is definitely over, perhaps a bigger question is if David Mcgoldrick has played his final game for the football club?
Whilst McCarthy, who himself is out of contract at the end of the current campaign, said the 30-year-old may not require an operation, he did state that he won’t play again for the foreseeable future,
“I don’t think he’ll be operated on but it will keep him out for about 10 weeks so that’s him finished for the season.
“He’s been a big player for us and the injury situation has been very unfortunate for him and the team.
“We have good physios here and we’ll have him up and running as soon as possible.”
McCarthy also acknowledged the fact that McGoldrick, who permanently joined the club from Nottingham Forest in 2013, is out of contract, but that discussions will take place between the concerned parties at some stage,
“It’s a difficult one when you’re nearing the end of your contract and you’re injured.
“It’s open for both parties so it’s down to Didz (McGoldrick) to have a chat and we’ll see what happens.
“He needs to get his injury sorted first and then him and his representatives will see what the situation is.”
