Napoli goalkeeper David Ospina has been taken to hospital after he seemed to collapse unconscious following a head injury.
The Colombia international received treatment for the knock to the head in a collision with Udinese forward Ignacio Pussetto during the opening minutes of the game at the Stadio San Paolo.
He had a cut to his forehead and insisted on continuing, even though Alex Meret warmed up and was ready to step in.
Gazzetta Dello Sport writes that for very long moments the San Paolo stood anxious, waiting for developments from the field where the Ospina’s team mates waved asking for help for their goalkeeper.
The medical team went immediately to help the Napoli goalkeeper after he collapsed on the ground at the 42nd minute of Napoli-Udinese.
The player was taken to the hospital for checkups. The first indications from the emergency room were positive as he was conscious.
He will undergo an MRI by the health personnel.
