Sinclair suffers blood clot

4 May 2013 19:52

Manchester City winger Scott Sinclair is in hospital after suffering a blood clot in his shoulder.

The 24-year-old is said to be comfortable and the clot is not thought to be life-threatening.

Sinclair was left out of the squad for City's 0-0 draw with former club Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday.

The club wished the winger a speedy recovery through their official Twitter account, writing: "Get well soon Scott Sinclair from everyone at Manchester City FC."

After signing at the Etihad Stadium in an eight million pound deal on transfer deadline day in August, Sinclair has only managed to make 14 appearances for Roberto Mancini's side, starting just twice.

The Italian had indeed hinted on Friday that the winger should look to leave the club at the end of the season, in order to prevent his career from stalling.

Mancini said: "Scott is young and he has good quality, but it was difficult for him this year.

"I think that it would be better if he could find another solution, because if he stays here maybe I can change how I feel but I can understand his frustration at the moment because he hasn't played a lot of games.

"It is not his fault - it is my fault. I think that a young player like Scott, Scott is a good player and he deserves to play. So it was always difficult for him this year."
