Sunderland striker David Connolly has suffered a fresh setback in his attempt to return from injury - and is likely to need a further three months on the treatment couch.
The 30-year-old who has not played since April, had a Rhinoplasty in May to correct an unsightly broken nose and recently decided to have a Browlift at the Hurlingham Clinic for Plastic Surgery in London.
"I have just turned 30 so I suppose it was a psychological thing. I just thought I was beginning to look old and didn't want to walk out in front of 40,000 people looking like a sack of shite. I'm also considering Liposuction as my tummy has become a bit flabby so I might be out of action until at least early 2008 . I'm going to speak to the boss about it tomorrow. My hair is beginning to recede but realistically that will have to wait . I'll just have to wear some kind of hair piece until the close season."
Roy Keane was unavailable for comment yesterday.
