Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen was stretchered off in the pitch in the final minutes of his team, Napoli’s 4-2 defeat at Atalanta on Sunday, after he collapsed in the final minute of the encounter.
The 21-year-old, who was making his 10th Serie A appearance for Napoli since he joined the club for a record €70m, including add-ons and bonuses, fell awkwardly and bumped the back of his head on the ground.
He was stretched off the field and immediately taken out of the stadium in an ambulance, as he appeared to lose consciousness.
Sky italia reported the incidence after the game, in their words;
It’s not clear what happened. He was down for a while, people thought he was injured, but then players and staff started calling for oxygen. He was put onto the stretcher and rushed off the field into the ambulance.
Reports from the official website of Napoli say several tests have been run on the 22-year-old and all came out negative.
The striker will remain in Bergamo until tomorrow under the clinical observation of their health Manager Raffaele Canonico.
