Ex-Liverpool star hospitalised after charity match left him with ‘damaged lung’ | Football | Sport

“I couldn’t fly back last week because of the damage to my lung. At the start, the doctors said I would need to wait three weeks, so I was a bit scared, but the specialist saw the X-rays a few days ago and said it has settled down. The lung is OK and with the ribs, it’s just a matter of time for them to heal.”

Aurelio went on to explain that former side Liverpool have been aiding him through his recovery, and his extended spell in England did allow him to catch some Premier League action.

He continued: “I feel much better now and I’ve been well looked after by the club. There’s always a good side to bad things. It meant I was able to enjoy Sunday’s game against Brighton at Anfield. Apart from the accident, it’s been a fantastic trip.”
