Villa captain Petrov, 32, has made 29 appearances for the club this season in all competitions and most recently featured in Saturday's 3-0 defeat to Arsenal, but reported that he was feeling unwell in the aftermath.

A club statement read: "The Villa board received news today that our long-standing captain Stiliyan Petrov has been diagnosed with Acute Leukaemia.

"Stiliyan developed a fever following the Arsenal game last Saturday and subsequently underwent tests.

"Haematology experts confirmed the diagnosis today. We expect to learn more about Stiliyan's situation in due course. During this time we ask that Stiliyan's privacy is placed ahead of all inquiries."

I know it's not a time to speculate but it doesn't sound good.

Absolutely horrible news. I know our Club and supporters will be with him all the way and we can do as much as we can to aid the recovery process.

The game tomorrow goes ahead at the insistence of Petrov, which is a measure of the man. Will be a strange atmosphere.

UTV.

wonder what hes got

acute leukaemia is so unspecific is it AML ALL ? CML or CLL

prognosis differs wildly dependant on type

chemo sucks balls but mans got no hair so thats one less thing hes got to worry about losing
