Sheffield Wednesday manager has pneumonia post-COVID-19

Must Read

SHEFFIELD, England (AP) – Darren Moore, manager of second-tier Sheffield Wednesday, has developed pneumonia and blood clots on his lungs following a recent coronavirus infection, he said.

The 46-year-old Moore returned from the requisite COVID-19 isolation period on Monday but felt discomfort the next night following the Owls’ 2-0 loss to Swansea.

“I have developed pneumonia as a result of COVID-19, with blood clots on the lungs and extreme discomfort,” Moore said in a club announcement late Thursday.

Moore, a former defender who played briefly for Jamaica’s national team, will now miss more time from the relegation-threatened Championship club, which hosts Bristol at Hillsborough on Saturday.

“I am gutted to be away but I understand the situation and the course of action I must take,” he said.

The club sent its “very best wishes to the gaffer for a speedy and full recovery.”
