    Aston Villa Captain Stiliyan Petrov was diagnosed with acute leukaemia on Friday. The condition was diagnosed following tests after the midfielder developed a fever.
    Petrov has been regular for his team this season and has scored 4 goals this season. He hasn’t trained since feeling sick with high temperatures in last weekend’s defeat at Arsenal.
    A club statement read “we have to learn more about stiliyan’s situation in due course and we have moved quickly to support him and his family.
    This is the second time this month English soccer is in shock over a player’s ill health, the first being Fabrice.
