MITCH Clark has been granted personal leave from the Melbourne Football Club due to health reasons.
The Club will continue to be in regular contact with Mitch throughout this period and is working closely with medical staff regarding his on-going treatment.
Some of the challenges Mitch is facing may require some time to overcome, and as a result he will be away from the Club for an extended period of time.
Football Manager Josh Mahoney said: “The Club’s main priority is to provide Mitch with the help he needs during this time. Clearly football comes last in this situation - Mitch is also overcoming a calf injury, and will continue to rehab and condition his physical injury during this period. Everyone at the Club is behind Mitch and will support him in every way possible.”
