“Quite pathetic” – Doncaster Rovers winger  has broken his silence after undergoing his seventh surgery in the span of three years…

Despite facing this challenging ordeal, Taylor maintains a positive outlook on his situation.

His most recent operation, which occurred on Monday, became necessary due to yet another injury setback just as he was attempting to make a comeback.

Over the past few years, the 31-year-old player has been grappling with a series of significant injuries and health issues, severely limiting his on-field appearances to just 19 since the commencement of the 2021/22 season.

Taylor shared an image on Instagram on Tuesday morning, depicting himself with his leg in a cast. In the accompanying caption, he conveyed his resilience, describing how a simple coffee cup at the hospital, bearing the words “the good life,” brightened his spirits and encouraged him to stay positive.

In his own words, he emphasized the importance of not dwelling on self-pity, quoting a wise piece of advice he received: “no one cares.” He advocates for perseverance, self-belief, and the appreciation of life.

Doncaster Rovers manager Grant McCann could not provide a precise timeline for Taylor’s recovery but indicated that it would take “months” rather than mere weeks.

Taylor had initially started the season by playing in the opening match against Harrogate, showcasing his skills during pre-season. However, he has not been able to play since then due to a knee injury.

Prior to this, Taylor had already undergone three surgeries to address an ankle injury and had a harrowing experience when the infection almost led to life-threatening sepsis, requiring a four-day hospital stay.

He also faced an episode of meningitis and contemplated retiring from professional football after sustaining a season-ending injury at Tranmere on Boxing Day.

Taylor, whose contract is in its final year, expressed his gratitude to Grant McCann for his continued support and faith in him, noting their previous collaboration at Peterborough United.
