Petrov will get best care - Thomas

Published Add your comment

Geoff Thomas believes Stiliyan Petrov will receive excellent care after the shock news that the Aston Villa captain has been diagnosed with acute leukaemia.

The condition was diagnosed following tests after the Bulgaria international, 32, developed a fever following last Saturday's defeat to Arsenal. Former England midfielder Thomas was diagnosed with chronic myeloid leukaemia in 2003, but has since recovered and established The Geoff Thomas Foundation to raise funds for a network of national centres.

"You are shocked with any news like this, but with somebody so young and so fit I think it always becomes more shocking," the 47-year-old told Sky Sports News.
