English Media outlet Daily Telegraph reports that Chelsea midfielder Ramires was rushed to a hospital cutting short his title celebrations after the Blues beat Crystal Palace by 1-0 to win their first Premier League Title in 5 years.
The Brazilian was named in the starting line-up for the Stamford Bridge side but had to be pulled out after he complained of illness and was replaced by Juan Cuadrado. The report states that manager Jose Mourinho was so concerned that he sent Ramires for a checkup.
It is believed that the 28-year-old will be under supervision and will also undergo checks which will attempt to find out the exact nature of the kidney problem that left Chelsea medical staff worried. Mourinho was quoted saying:
“He went to the hospital. He was feeling so bad we had to take him out of the dressing room. I am going to visit him now. He was feeling really bad.”
Ramires hasn’t been a regular player for the Blues this season and there were rumours earlier that he could leave the club for more game-time elsewhere on the pitch. Chelsea’s season though has been nothing short of effective.
While they have defended brilliantly, John Terry leading the back four admirably and NemanjMatic acting as the prime destroyer in the middle of the pitch.Eden Hazard too has come of age this term while CescFabregas and Diego Costa’s brilliance have seen Chelsea cruise to the title this campaign.
Get well soon Ramires!
