Sunderland doctor quits over Van Aanholt farce

-

SUNDERLAND’S club doctor has resigned following the Patrick van Aanholt saga. Ishtiaq Rehman handed his notice in earlier this week following the dramatic withdrawal of the Dutch full-back from David Moyes’s side to face Tottenham only 15 minutes before kick-off. In the aftermath of the September 18 game at White Hart Lane, which Sunderland lost 1-0, Moyes said he was acting on the advice of a cardiologi­st from the Football Associatio­n cardiology consensus panel when he left Van Aanholt out. But the FA denied any involvemen­t and insisted the Wearsiders were dealing with an independen­t specialist. That lack of communicat­ion within the club is not thought to have gone down well with Dr Rehman.
