Newcastle United star Ciaran Clark has been punched unconscious in a Magaluf bar attack, according to reports from Majorca.
Local newspaper Ultima Hora say that the 28 year old defender was rushed to hospital after being punched in the face by another man.
The attack is said to have happened at 2am on Saturday at at Crystal’s Bar in Magaluf.
Clark was taken to Son Espases Hospital in the Majorcan capital Palma.
Police arrested the alleged attacker and he made a court appearance on Monday, where he was bailed as police continued their enquiries.
The attacker is described by the newspaper as a ‘6ft 2in well built foreigner.’
Initial contact is said to have happened on the dance floor when the pair bumped into each other, with Clark then being ‘hit’ according to Ultima Hora.
The alleged attacker made off but then later returned and without saying a word, is said to have punched Ciaran Clark in the face, causing him to fall to the ground.
The report says Clark lost consciousness and was then taken by ambulance to the Son Espases hospital in Palma.
In court, the man accused said he was on the dance floor of Crystal’s and a young man had grabbed his chest and caused injuries.
The arrested man claims he was not drunk and that he tried to get rid of the other man (Ciaran Clark) by punching him.
No mention of the condition of Newcastle’s Ciaran Clark but presumably he has recovered ok.
