The rumors behind Patrick van Aanholt's sudden withdrawal from Sunday's match against Tottenham have been put to rest.
The club mysteriously scratched the left-back less than an hour before the 1-0 loss due to "medical reasons" but manager David Moyes revealed it was due to a heart scan that raised questions about his health. However, van Aanholt reportedly has a chance to play in the League Cup on Wednesday. Said manager David Moyes: "He had the statutory checks with the cardiologists and the FA panel of cardiologists looked at it and advised us really late on Sunday that he should not play until further tests had taken place. We are just surprised that the FA panel didn’t contact me or contact my doctor until 3.55pm on Sunday afternoon." Sep 20 - 4:44 PM
