Days after I reported on the collapse of Sheffield United star John Fleck, multiple European footballers had similar incidents.
The first involves FC Sheriff Tiraspol’s Adama Traore.
In a Champions League contest with Real Madrid, Traore went down clutching his chest in a frightening scene.
Yet another football player collapsing.

Sheriff Tiraspol's Adama Traore goes down clutching chest in another football related heart incident. Why is an enquiry not taking place into all of these? pic.twitter.com/23hsXKqKvS

Traore is the latest high-profile footballer to collapse on the pitch this year.
4 high profile footballers who collapsed mid game over the last year. The rate that this is happening is unheard of. Everyone is thinking the same thing, honest people know.

The Daily Mail described the horrifying scene:
Traore, 26, turned to walk away from the ball, which had gone out for a throw-in, in the 77th minute when he immediately became uncomfortable, clutching his chest before slumping to the turf.
He remained breathing throughout but after a few seconds of lying on the ground in distress the Moldovan side’s medics raced on to help.
Medics immediately looked to use smelling salts to activate his senses but he was not reacting strongly too them.
He was seen shaking his head in responses to questions by the medics and was eventually raised to a sitting position before being helped off the field and back to the dressing room.
The Moldovan side have yet to detail the reasons behind why Traore was suffering from chest pains.
Reports also surfaced of Wigan’s Charlie Wyke collapsing during training.

I wonder how many…. Before we are able to talk about this honestly to prevent any more. Every time you read this & it’s now in the 100s know that, that life has changed for the worse for ever https://t.co/1ABmVjDen4

The Guardian reported:
The Wigan Athletic striker Charlie Wyke is in a stable condition in hospital after collapsing during training earlier this week.
The club announced on Thursday that 28-year-old Wyke received treatment from Latics medical staff after the incident on Monday before being taken to hospital. He is continuing to be monitored and will be unavailable for selection for the immediate future.
Wigan’s chief executive Mal Brannigan told the club’s website: “First and foremost, the absolute priority for everyone associated with Wigan Athletic is Charlie’s health and wellbeing and providing support to him and his family.
Traore and Wyke are the latest additions to the disturbing number of footballers to collapse this year.
The question raised by many is how many more footballers must collapse before there’s an investigation to determine the source.
More specifically, if the experimental COVID-19 injections have caused the dramatic uptick in cardiac events.

Does everyone remember back in the 90s and 00s when fit and healthy footballers used to collapse all the time for apparently no reason….??🤷♂️ No, me neither….
— Joe Smyth🩸 (@joesmyth474) November 25, 2021
Some of the fittest young men in the country, diet monitored, physical examination including ECG before signing on, just have a "clutchers" but no-one is allowed to form the obvious conclusion
FFS this is Orwellian now, of course it's the f4cking jab!!

A lot of strain is put on footballers’ hearts. We know the vaccine has a risk of causing heart inflammation. It’s an obvious and legitimate line of inquiry to ask if the vaccines are causing these athletes to collapse.

Firstly – I hope he is ok and recovers! 🙏🏼
Secondly – How many professional, super fit & regularly medically checked but collapsing coincidences is too many? 🥺

Scientists reject pundits' vaccine 'theory' after three footballers collapse in a week – Telegraph story https://t.co/pmglvLof5E
— Joe Warmington (@joe_warmington) November 26, 2021
yahoo sport reported on leading scientists rejecting such speculation:
With former professionals, such as Ramon Vega and Matthew Le Tissier, also wading in to demand investigations into links, scientists responded by reminding them of their “public responsibility”. “Given the track record of certain footballers in the field of anti-vaccine beliefs, it is totally irresponsible to make these unsubstantiated comments, as opposed to getting them properly dealt with,” said Prof Keith Neal, who has 25 years of experience in the research of the epidemiology of infectious diseases at the University of Nottingham.
Prof Robert Dingwall, a public health specialist at Nottingham Trent’s School of Social Sciences, said: “There are many reasons why on-field collapses may occur, even in clusters. We should all be careful not to blame any particular cause until they have been properly investigated. It may be tempting to blame Covid vaccines but pundits do have a public responsibility not to fuel vaccine hesitancy without any real evidence that this is a common factor in widely separated events.”
On the same week of the latest footballers to collapse, British cardiologist Dr. Aseem Malhotra informed GB News of researchers unwilling to publish findings of a link between the mRNA injections and cardiac inflammation.
After another three footballers collapse with heart issues in a week it seems like people are slowly beginning to ask questions. Well done GB News for covering. Absolutely immoral that many will not publish their findings due to not wanting to lose grants. https://t.co/iJqlF5Tg8a

Anyone with decent morals would demand an investigation into finding out the cause of this calamity.
