Photo allegedly of Richard Keogh’s nasty looking injured leg in car crash surfaces

A photo allegedly of Richard Keogh’s nasty looking injury that he suffered in the car crash this week has been posted on social media.

Derby County confirmed Keogh has been ruled out for the rest of the season due to a broken wrist and serious knee injury from the incident that saw Mason Bennett and Tom Lawrence charged with drink-driving on a team night out.

Richard Keogh claims to feel “responsible” for what happened with the club planning to have a “rigorous internal investigation”.

The photo below is getting questioned about, with many social media users suggesting why would he wear Sondico shorts on a night out. However his scar just below his knee is suggested that it matches. We’ll let you make your mind up.

Phillip Cocu told BBC Radio Derby said: “It’s having a huge effect on him personally.

“He’s extremely down of course because he realises what’s going on for him. I think he feels responsible, yes. More senior players always have to step up and take responsibility.

“It’s an early stage to say but if we say he’ll be out for the rest of the season, it’s a very serious injury.

“It’s a big deal losing an important player in Richard – we have to deal with it together.

“Individual mistakes have been made and as we communicated there will be consequences – we have serious matters to deal with and disciplinary actions will be taken.”

Ireland manager Mick McCarthy is now left with a defensive crisis as Shane Duffy is also set to miss next month’s crucial Euro 2020 qualifiers away to Georgia and Switzerland.

Derby’s statement also ready: “The players were out as part of a scheduled team-building dinner with staff and while the majority of them acted responsibly and left at around 8pm and were not involved, a small group, including the team captain Richard Keogh, continued drinking into the night.

“They should have known when to stop and also ignored the opportunity to be driven home using cars laid on by the club and chose to stay out.

“As a result of an alcohol-related incident, Richard Keogh has sustained a serious knee injury that will prevent him from playing until the end of the season.

“We have been very clear about our attitude towards alcohol and the players know that at certain and specific times of the season they are permitted a drink together as a group in a controlled environment.

“Those involved in Tuesday’s incident know they will pay a heavy price for their actions, but also that we will support them with their rehabilitation back into the squad and team.”

This is not the first time that Keogh has been involved in controversy this season as last month there were pictures showing blood on his neck following an alleged row at Nottingham Forest. An investigation has also been launched in relation to that.

Cocu told reporters: “It’s always negative if an incident happens on the pitch, especially after the game. At the moment both clubs are investigating what happened, so I can’t say too much.”


After checking out the photo alleging to be Richard Keogh’s leg injury suffered in the accident involving Derby players this week, fans took to give their reaction with some trying to figure out whether it was legit or not – see what they had to say on the next page.
