Winger has blood clot removed.
Manchester City winger Scott Sinclair was rushed into hospital this week to have an operation to remove a blood clot in his shoulder, The Express reports.
The 24-year-old was taken to a hospital in Manchester last Friday after complaining of feeling unwell and was shocked to hear that he would need an emergency operation to remove a blood clot.
It caused him to miss out on the squad for Saturday’s game against Swansea and the club confirmed that he had been taken into casualty following the match, which ended in a goaless draw.
“We are very sorry for Scott but we hope he recovers quickly. Scott is getting better, he is in the hospital,” boss Roberto Mancini said following City’s 1-0 win over West Bromwich Albion on Tuesday.
Sinclair is set to be discharged from the facility this weekend and will return for a check up in about a month’s time, the club confirmed, though that also means it is likely that he will play no further part in the club’s remaining two games.
He has been heavily linked with a move away this summer anyway having failed to establish himself in City’s first team with Everton and former club Swansea both interested in taking him away from the Etihad.
