During half time of Sunderland’s match with Cardiff City 2-2 draw on Saturday, Italian striker Fabio Borini was substituted at half time and taken to hospital after feeling ill before and during the match.
However Borini’s conditions worsened in the Sunderland locker room at the break and he was taken to the University Hospital of Wales for alleged “precautionary measures.”
Following the dramatic 2-2 draw, which saw Sunderland score twice in the final seven minutes to grab a point, Black Cats manager Gus Poyet confirmed that Borini was feeling unwell in the lead up to the game and was unable to continue after his health deteriorated.
“Fabio is at hospital now. He was feeling really bad before the game and was sick,” Poyet told Sky Sports post-game. “We decided together that he was going to play, but at half time it was impossible for him to carry on. Now to make sure everything is all right, he is at hospital. So let’s hope it’s nothing and he can come back on the plane with us now, back up North.”
