Man United backroom staff member rushed to hospital in Australia

A member of Manchester United's backroom team in his 50s is in a stable condition having been rushed to hospital after a suspected overdose at the club's hotel in Perth.
United, who are currently on a pre-season tour of Australia, confirmed that a member of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's staff is receiving medical treatment in hospital via a statement. 
Australian news channel 9 News have reported that a male in his 50s was taken by ambulance to Royal Perth Hospital from the Crown Towers hotel, where the United squad are based.
Further reports in Australia have emerged claiming that the male is now stable in hospital.
It remains unclear whether the man's suspected overdose is as a result of an illicit substance, prescription medication or a medical condition.
Solskjaer's side arrived in Perth for the start of their pre-season tour on Monday and hosted an open training session at the WACA on Thursday night.
A club spokesman confirmed later that evening that a member of United's backroom team, who is currently unknown, was rushed to hospital after being taken ill.
The statement read: 'A member of our backroom staff was taken ill overnight and has been sent to hospital by our club doctor for further treatment.
'We request that medical confidentiality is respected.'
United will take on local side Perth Glory at the Optus Stadium in a friendly on Saturday and then face Leeds, before the tour continues on to Singapore and China.
