A MEMBER of Manchester United's backroom staff has been rushed to hospital after taking a suspected overdose on the club's pre-season tour.

Royal Perth Hospital is yet to officially confirm the man’s condition.

It remains unclear whether the man’s suspected overdose is as a result of an illicit substance, prescription medication or a medical condition.

A club statement released earlier said: "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 face Perth Glory tomorrow in their first game of the tour before battling old foes Leeds in the same city on Wednesday.

Solskjaer and his squad then travel to Singapore where they will take on Inter Milan in eight days.
