Borini Is Okay Confirms Poyet

Sunderland manager Gus Poyet has confirmed striker Fabio Borini is now out of hospital after being rushed there during their 2-2 draw with Cardiff in Wales yesterday.

The striker who is on loan from Liverpool had the two best chances to find the net for the Black Cats during the first half and looked the likeliest to score.

But he did not turn out for the side in the second half, being replaced by Steven Fletcher.

Poyet said to reporters: 'He is feeling better.

'We have more information, the doctor called me. He is not going to fly back with us, he will stay down here overnight, but he has been released from hospital. Luckily it is nothing serious.

'We were really, really worried as he was really, really sick so the doctor decided rightly to take him to hospital but he has been released now. It was a virus or sickness so no problems.'


Ironically it was Borini's replacement that sparked the fightback from Sunderland in the dying minutes of the game and from then on Sunderland went for the throat.

They were finally rewarded for their hard work when Jack Colback netted deep into stoppage time to give the visitors a valuable point.
