Crystal Palace boss Pardew: Pape Souare facing 6 months out

Crystal Palace defender Pape Souare faces six months out after a serious car accident.

The 26-year-old Senegal international was rushed to hospital following the accident on Sunday, also ruling him out of the African Cup of Nations in January.

"There is nothing in the engineering of the knee and ankle that's a problem so we think five to six months he should be up and running around again," Palace boss Alan Pardew said.

"I expect him to play again this season. I'm not too clear on the details it was such a quick incident, the car pulled in front of him and he had very little time to react and therefore the accident occurred."
