Tiago discharged from hospital after heavy collision

Defender recovering at home after sustaining head injury

28 October 2017

We are pleased to report that Reading defender Tiago Ilori has been discharged from hospital and is recovering at home after sustaining a head injury against Middlesbrough on Saturday afternoon.

The defender clashed heads with teammate Liam Moore during the first half of the Championship fixture – both sides’ medical teams were on the scene quickly to deal with two simultaneous and complex head injuries.  We would like to put on record our thanks to Middlesbrough’s staff for their prompt assistance.

Liam was able to continue playing after receiving stitches, but Tiago was taken to hospital for further examination, before being discharged later that evening.
