Richard Dunne: Career is not under threat, says Paul Lambert

Three operations have failed to clear up the groin problem which first affected Dunne during the Republic of Ireland's Euro 2012 campaign.

The centre-half - out of contract this summer - has not played a minute for Aston Villa under Lambert.

But the Villa boss said: "Is it career-threatening? No, nothing like that. You can't say that.

"Richard has been trying his utmost to get back fit. He's been to the best people on the other side of the world.

"He feels good at some points, but not so good at other times. He can't play through the pain barrier with that injury.

"It's been really complicated that injury. Richard has been over to the United States a couple of times to try and get it sorted.

"But there are little niggles that aren't clearing up. That's a real frustrating thing for him."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
