I am pretty sure it is quite common in american sports. I’d expect some of the top clubs around Europe have something in place to cover long term injuries but is a guess from me. 

Coppello works for a Premier League club.  It’s what he’s posted previously.

Wrong, it absolutely can. Chances are probably very slim for a professional athlete, but some players do have underlying heart conditions etc

I just think back to that virus Pato had that bollixed him for months if not longer. Was it David Clarkson too that got something that pretty much screwed his whole career?

Yea Pato got hit quite bad, whilst in brilliant form for us. Wasn’t the same again, though is showing signs of that player since he came back from the Derby loan.

Met an insurance salesman about 15 years ago who said most of our players were privately under some form of cover for loss of wages, apparently most contracts had severely reduced pay if a player was out with a long term injury.
