- Striker fears injury could threaten ‘life-changing move’
- Lee Bowyer says Chris Solly and David Davis will also not play
Lee Bowyer has warned clubs to expect more footballers to refuse to play for fear of injury after revealing Charlton’s talisman Lyle Taylor is one of three players who have said they will not take the field when the Championship resumes. The season is due to restart on 20 June but the club’s top goalscorer, who is out of contract at the end of the month, informed Bowyer he does not wish to play because an injury could jeopardise his chances of a “life-changing move”.
The 30-year-old has not trained with the club since last Tuesday and Bowyer admitted he twice failed in his efforts to change Taylor’s mind.
