Hull City news: Hull City defender, Angus MacDonald diagnosed of cancer after suffering Blood issues at the age of 15.
Angus MacDonald has recently been diagnosed with cancer, though it’s still the early stages.
The 26-year-old earlier had issues of his blood clotting around his lungs while he was 15-years of age.
Angus recovered fully of the blood clot as he was quickly treated and discharged upon recovery.
But the defender now has another health issue to fight, facing his bowel cancer.
Having made just 15 appearances for the Tigers, Angus will have his health to battle before he can return to the pitch.
Hull City took their official website to announce the sad event which they pledged to stand by the Englishman.
“Angus has shown great strength of character in the way he has reacted to this news,” Hull City wrote on their website.
“The whole Tigers family join together in showing Angus continued the love and will support him in his recovery.
“His physical and mental wellbeing is our number one priority at this moment in time.
“The Club kindly requests that supporters and the media respect the privacy of Angus and his family at this time.
“Please also note that any further updates on his progress will be provided by the Club.”
Angus MacDonald had also missed almost the whole of last season as he was then diagnosed with vein thrombosis in November 2018.
