Robson in 'good spirits' after op

Recommended Posts

Former England manager Sir Bobby Robson is making good progress after a small tumour on his brain was removed.

It was found when he was taken to hospital after falling ill during a match at Ipswich earlier this month.

 

The 73-year-old had the operation last week and a statement from his agent said he was in good spirits and does not need follow-up treatment.

 

But a slight swelling on his brain has caused temporary movement loss on his left side and he is still in hospital.

 

Robson had a lung tumour removed earlier this year and has had cancer surgery on two other occasions.

 

'Slight swelling'

 

The statement released on Thursday said: "Sir Bobby Robson continues to make good progress after major surgery which involved complete re-section of a tumour from the motor cortex part of his brain.

 

"Thankfully he does not require any follow-up chemotherapy or radiation treatment.

 

"Sir Bobby is in good spirits and talking about his recovery. He is out of bed, enjoying reading the papers, watching television and listening to the radio to keep up to date with the latest football news.

 

"However, he has a slight swelling on his brain which is causing a temporary loss of movement in part of his left leg and left arm. This is being treated with physiotherapy. He will therefore remain in hospital for the time being."

 

Robson is currently a consultant for the Republic of Ireland side. He led England as coach to the 1990 World Cup semi-finals and had a successful managerial career at Ipswich Town.

 

He also managed Barcelona, PSV Eindhoven, Sporting Lisbon, FC Porto and Newcastle United.
