Clayton Oliver continues his indefinite leave from Melbourne due to ongoing personal issues. Despite being a four-time best and fairest winner, there was speculation around whether or not he would be traded by the club after a hamstring injury. Recently, his future in the AFL became uncertain after a reported seizure and a charge for driving with a suspended license. Melbourne’s general manager, Alan Richardson, confirmed Oliver’s absence from pre-season training on Thursday, stating that the club supports the star midfielder during this challenging time. Former footballer, Kane Cornes, claimed that Oliver’s personal issues may be more significant than publicly known. In addition to the legal trouble, Oliver has been accused of damaging parked cars near the MCG. With 162 games played for Melbourne, Oliver remains a star player despite the challenges he currently faces.
