Patrick van Aanholt case takes dramatic twist: The FA speak out after David Moyes comments

20 Sep

A spokesperson said: “This cardiac screen was not conducted as part of the FA’s cardiac screening programme, therefore the FA had no involvement in the player’s referral, the screening process or the communication of the results with the club.


“On occasion, clubs may seek independent advice on a player’s cardiac health from an expert cardiologist who sits on the FA Consensus Panel, which is an expert body in this area.

“Cardiologists who sit on the FA Consensus Panel are hugely respected and vastly experienced specialists who place the patient at the very centre of their care and their only concern will be in regard to the well-being of that individual.”

Hours earlier Moyes took a pop at the FA over their handling of the situation.
