These things do seem to be happening more frequently with footballers.
Has it always happened and its just being reported more? Has medical science improved so much that these things have happened in the past but not been picked up/attributed to other things? Could simply be the physical demands of the modern game?

Sergio Aguero looks like he's going to have to retire.

Hope the lad gets well soon.

Could be either couldn’t it? There’s something not right, happening too much.

There doesn’t seem to be much investigation into it from the media 🤔
It's only recently happened so I wouldn't really have expected much at this stage from the media and whilst we can speculate, it would be pretty irresponsible to be talking about issues with the vaccine or Covid in the media without some proper medical evidence.

From what I've seen (in people I know at least) Covid has left a lot of people with ongoing issues and the longer lasting issues seem to be worse in younger folk.... I don't know wnyone who has suffered any lasting negative effects from the vaccine.

The media are constantly irresponsible 🤣🙈

They’ve scared the shit out of many people in the last 20 months & even today a new super scary variant is on the way 😱

They’ve been all over Djokovic for him not revealing his vaccination status… but it some cases like this, it’s not even debated.

Hopefully it is non-related to either the vaccine or Covid but it seems too coincidental as this week there has been 3 fairly high profile cases of footballers collapsing.

Wyke has not been vaccinated and already categorically confirmed it is not vaccine related.

C'mon, they do no more work than a pro cyclist or tennis player so I don't think it's the work rate or training regime.

Cruyff and Souness, both who mainly played in the 70's & 80's both had dodgy tickers.

There will be others from that era who had the same.

These footballers need to go out clubbing, drinking a smoking tabs, this never happened in the 60's, 70's & 80's, it's obvious innit!

Seriously, hope he is okay but it does seem to be a regular thing and the fitness levels are so extreme now that it must put a strain on the insides of the body.

We had a similar thread when it happened to a Shrewsbury player a month or so ago. I suggested Covid as a possible cause back then because it is known to cause myocarditis and pericarditis in some people.

Strange they had to dismiss the Covid vaccine as the problem especially as the player hasn't had one. Goes to show how quickly conspiracy theories become rife.

Trouble is we’ve got a nation of whoppers hooked on YouTube conspiracy propaganda and desperate to prove to their mates that ‘they were right about vaccines’.

I got taken home by a taxi driver last week who was droning on about it all.

All I can say is the only effect the vaccine has had on me is to stop me getting Covid. I’ve spent 4 hours in a car with someone who’s had it, dealt with two kids at home Ill from it and still not caught it…. I’m booked in for my booster and can’t wait…. And I say that as someone who was sceptical….
