Update on Jack Clarke - tests showed he was suffering from a virus. He’s doing indoor gym work this week and will do outdoor work next week, though not with the first team yet. #lufc— Phil Hay (@PhilHayYEP) February 21, 2019
Tests revealed that Jack Clarke was only suffering from a virus when he collapsed on the bench against Middlesbrough, and will restart light training soon, and while he’s not back with the first team just yet, he will be soon.
And in case you’re wondering how a virus could send a Premier League footballer to hospital, he was likely dehydrated already and then played a half of intense football. Lesson learned for him, and hopefully he’ll be 100% soon enough.
