Chelsea midfielder Ramires has admitted that he will miss the club’s upcoming clash with Liverpool thanks to a mystery kidney illness, but he has moved to reassure fans that it is nothing serious, the Daily Star reports.
The Brazilian international was initially named in the Blues starting XI ahead of Sunday’s clash with Crystal Palace, but had to be withdrawn and admitted to hospital following a strange kidney illness.
He could only watch as his teammates sealed their first Premier League title since 2010, but took to Instagram to congratulate the club on their success from his home after he’d been discharged.
And though he confirmed that his illness was nothing serious, he will still not be fit enough to take on Liverpool this weekend.
“I was very sick yesterday minutes before the match because of a renal complication, but I’m well and home with my family,” he said.
“Thank God it was nothing serious and I will be fully recovered in a few weeks.
“Thank you to all that sent me messages and were with me. I would like to thank the Chelsea’s medical team for the exceptional job.
“I was sad not to be part of the party on the pitch, but very pleased with the title, the only English title I had left to conquer. Congratulations Chelsea!”
Ramires has played a key part in the club’s success this season, featuring 23 times in the League, scoring two goals in the process.
