Michael Schumacher Health Update Won’t Be Released Anytime Soon, Says Manager Sabine Kehm
The task of getting health updates on Michael Schumacher has become very tough, since his exit from the hospital. The retired racing driver’s family presently does not want his physical condition to be revealed in public. Their decision to keep it secret is simply to avoid a bunch of speculations and fake reports on his health.
It is known that Michael Schumacher suffered a very serious injury in a skiing accident last Dec. 2013. He fell and hit his head on a rock, despite wearing a ski helmet. He suffered a traumatic brain injury and was in the state of coma for six months. Later, he was relocated to his home where he continues receiving medical treatment and rehabilitation in private.
Schumacher’s Manager Declares To Not Reveal Health Update To Public
According to Mobi Picker, this is for the first time that Michael Schumacher’s manager, Sabine Kehm announced that his health update would never be disclosed to the public. Kehm also said in the last year that neither his family nor the team would disclose any updates.
“Michael has consistently drawn a clear line between the public and the private, who has always been accepted by the fans and the media,” Kehm said while opening up about the rationale behind the silence of his family. This choice is being taken by his family members to protect the 48-year old Formula One legend’s privacy from the public.
Manager Says Family Is Not Obliged To Keep The Public Up To Date
According to Kehm, Michael Schumacher’s health condition or any updates on it are not a public issue and that’s the reason they are not bound to release any from time to time. They are not ready to comment on his recovery or health condition in the future. Even former Formula One Star Philippe Streiff said to Daily Star (via iSports Times) that Schumacher will “probably not 100 percent recover” from his catastrophic injuries.
