Houllier visits the hospital not through choice

Aston Villa manager Gerard Houllier has taken ill over night and taken a visit to Birmingham hospital, the BBC says:

Aston Villa manager Gerard Houllier has been admitted to hospital, the BBC understands.
It is thought the 63-year-old was taken to hospital in Birmingham overnight.
He is understood to have spoken to the club's chief executive Paul Faulkner and his condition is said to be comfortable.
Reports that Gerard suffered (what is probably) a heart attack because he realised he'd spent £18 million on Darren Bent have not been confirmed.  Gerard had some heart issues back in 2001 when he managed Liverpool so it's probably not ridiculous to guess that this incident might be related but we can confirm that he isn't dead yet, though because he is mortal, eventually one day he will be.  Unless he is immortal in which case he would be either a vampire or Highlander.  He doesn't have fangs nor does he sound very Scottish to me, but his first name is Gerard and that is also Gerard Butler's name... the pieces are all coming together.  Gerard Houllier is.. THE HIGHLANDER!

Unless he dies from a heart attack which means he probably isn't.
