Days after I reported on the collapse of Sheffield United star John Fleck, multiple European footballers had similar incidents.
The first involves FC Sheriff Tiraspol’s Adama Traore.
In a Champions League contest with Real Madrid, Traore went down clutching his chest in a frightening scene.
Traore is the latest high-profile footballer to collapse on the pitch this year.
Traore, 26, turned to walk away from the ball, which had gone out for a throw-in, in the 77th minute when he immediately became uncomfortable, clutching his chest before slumping to the turf.
He remained breathing throughout but after a few seconds of lying on the ground in distress the Moldovan side’s medics raced on to help.
Medics immediately looked to use smelling salts to activate his senses but he was not reacting strongly too them.
He was seen shaking his head in responses to questions by the medics and was eventually raised to a sitting position before being helped off the field and back to the dressing room.
The Moldovan side have yet to detail the reasons behind why Traore was suffering from chest pains.
Reports also surfaced of Wigan’s Charlie Wyke collapsing during training.
The Guardian reported:
The Wigan Athletic striker Charlie Wyke is in a stable condition in hospital after collapsing during training earlier this week.
The club announced on Thursday that 28-year-old Wyke received treatment from Latics medical staff after the incident on Monday before being taken to hospital. He is continuing to be monitored and will be unavailable for selection for the immediate future.
Wigan’s chief executive Mal Brannigan told the club’s website: “First and foremost, the absolute priority for everyone associated with Wigan Athletic is Charlie’s health and wellbeing and providing support to him and his family.
Traore and Wyke are the latest additions to the disturbing number of footballers to collapse this year.
The question raised by many is how many more footballers must collapse before there’s an investigation to determine the source.
More specifically, if the experimental COVID-19 injections have caused the dramatic uptick in cardiac events.
Yahoo sport reported on leading scientists rejecting such speculation:
With former professionals, such as Ramon Vega and Matthew Le Tissier, also wading in to demand investigations into links, scientists responded by reminding them of their “public responsibility”. “Given the track record of certain footballers in the field of anti-vaccine beliefs, it is totally irresponsible to make these unsubstantiated comments, as opposed to getting them properly dealt with,” said Prof Keith Neal, who has 25 years of experience in the research of the epidemiology of infectious diseases at the University of Nottingham.
Prof Robert Dingwall, a public health specialist at Nottingham Trent’s School of Social Sciences, said: “There are many reasons why on-field collapses may occur, even in clusters. We should all be careful not to blame any particular cause until they have been properly investigated. It may be tempting to blame Covid vaccines but pundits do have a public responsibility not to fuel vaccine hesitancy without any real evidence that this is a common factor in widely separated events.”
On the same week of the latest footballers to collapse, British cardiologist Dr. Aseem Malhotra informed GB News of researchers unwilling to publish findings of a link between the mRNA injections and cardiac inflammation.
As I’ve noted in a previous report and video montage, 2021 has witnessed an unprecedented number of sudden collapses of fit, healthy athletes.
Anyone with decent morals would demand an investigation into finding out the cause of this calamity.
