Sheffield United midfielder John Fleck has been rushed to hospital after collapsing in worrying scenes during his side’s 1-0 Championship win at Reading. The Blades were leading at the time thanks to Jayden Bogle’s second-half strike. Fleck collapsed to the ground when off the ball and his team-mates immediately called for medical assistance.
Fleck was helped back to his feet by the medics after receiving attention for nearly 10 minutes and was given oxygen before being stretchered off.
He was put into an ambulance and taken to a nearby hospital.
Sky Sports News claimed Fleck ‘was able to stand with the aid of an oxygen mask’ and was ‘conscious’ when he left the stadium.
Blades boss Slavisa Jokanovic gave an update on Fleck’s condition when speaking to reporters after the match.
Jokanovic said: “He is in hospital, he is conscious and he asked for the result. Hopefully he we will be okay.
“He is safe, in good hands and we pray that everything will be okay.”
