Everton fullback Coleman: I've never thought about Taylor...

Everton fullback Seamus Coleman insists he holds no grudge against Aston Villa defender Neil Taylor.

Coleman says he does not hold a grudge against Taylor, the Welsh player responsible for the leg break that ended his World Cup ambitions.

"I haven't even thought of Neil Taylor five times since the injury," said Coleman last night. "He played a part in the tackle and it wasn't a great tackle.

"I was going for the ball, he was a bit high but these things happen in a tough international fixture. If I hold any grudge against him it's not going to help me in my rehab. He has to get on with his journey and I have to get on with mine. If I hold any anger towards him it won't help me. Let him carry on with what he has to do, and I'll crack on myself.

"He sent a message and that was fine with me, no problem. It's a year ago now and I've got things to look forward to. The tackle will always be brought up but I have to crack on."
