Oldham assistant coach Brendan Sheridan has been discharged from hospital after defeating coronavirus.
Sheridan spent two weeks on intensive care in an induced coma and on a ventilator to help him breathe after he contracted COVID-19 before spending a week on Ward 20 at Pinderfields where he made a full recovery.
In a statement released by The Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust, it read: “Brendan wanted to us to thank all the staff involved in his care on his behalf.
“He said he feels very humbled and grateful towards everyone at Pinderfields Hospital, they have all been fantastic.
“He said it’s the hard work and dedication of all the staff at the trust, it is not just a one-man band, it’s a lot of team work that goes in to making sure the system works. The effort that goes in to ensuring that patients get the best care is unquestionably amazing – and we couldn’t agree more!
“Thank you to all the staff on ICU, Ward 20 and across the hospital and in the community for everything you are doing to support our patients.”
