Poyet confirms ill Borini taken to hospital

28 December 2013 21:11

Sunderland head coach Gus Poyet confirmed that Fabio Borini was taken to hospital ill at half-time in their 2-2 draw with Cardiff City.

The Premier League's bottom club produced a stirring fightback as a Steven Fletcher strike and a 95th-minute goal from Jack Colback earned a point for the visitors after Jordon Mutch and Fraizer Campbell had seemingly put Cardiff in command.

However, there is some concern over on-loan Liverpool striker Borini, who was replaced by Fletcher on Saturday after reportedly collapsing during the interval.

Borini had felt unwell in the build-up to the game and Poyet has since allayed fears over the 22-year-old by revealing he has now been released following his precautionary trip to hospital.

"He's feeling better, the doctor called, he's not going to fly back with us, he's going to stay down here overnight but he's been released from hospital, so it's luckily nothing serious," he said.

"We were a bit worried because he was really really sick (at half-time), the doctor decided – rightly – to take him to hospital, but he's been released now so it looks as though it was a virus or sickness so no problems.

"He was a little bit sick just before the game, he wanted to play, and did quite well but at half time he was looking down and weak.

"We decided to change him, the doctor checked him twice and decided to have an extra check in hospital."
