    There's conflicting stories over this. One 9 have read, and hope is true, is that Peter is still alive but in intensive care. Fingers crossed it is the case

    Yes, I just read that South Wales Police have confirmed that he is still with us, but sadly fighting for his life in intensive care.

    So awful for his family and especially his pregnant wife. Sending thoughts to him and his family x

    Sky reporting this statement.


    Peter Whittingham made more than 400 appearances for Cardiff.

    Former Cardiff midfielder Peter Whittingham is in hospital with head injuries following a fall.

    The former England U21 international, who finished his career at Blackburn in 2018, suffered the injuries after an accidental fall at a pub in Barry.

    "At around 10pm on March 7, South Wales Police were called to a licensed premises in Barry," a police statement read.

    "A 35-year-old man from Penarth suffered a head injury as a result of a fall and remains at the University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff.

    "At this stage there is no evidence or suggestion of a criminal act, and it appears the injury was caused by an accidental fall.

    "Enquiries are continuing into the circumstances of the incident."

    Nuneaton-born Whittingham began his career at boyhood club Aston Villa, where he made his debut in 2003 and went on to make 66 appearances.

    He joined Cardiff in 2007 and played in both FA Cup and League Cup finals for the Bluebirds, as well as winning promotion to the Premier League in 2013.

    Whittingham made 459 appearances and scored 98 goals for Cardiff, before finishing his career at Blackburn in 2018.




    My thoughts go to his family.
