Borini out of hospital after Cardiff scare

Have your say

SUNDERLAND manager Gus Poyet has confirmed striker Fabio Borini has been released from hospital after being taken ill at half-time during the 2-2 draw at Cardiff.

The on-loan Liverpool striker was involved in two of his side’s best attacking moments during the first half but did not emerge for the second half as Steven Fletcher came on in his place.

It later emerged Borini had gone to hospital but Poyet said: “He is feeling better.

“We have more information, the doctor called me. He is not going to fly back with us, he will stay down here overnight, but he has been released from hospital. Luckily it is nothing serious.

“We were really, really worried as he was really, really sick so the doctor decided rightly to take him to hospital but he has been released now. It was a virus or sickness so no problems.”
