TIMELINE

Ospina given all clear after collapsing during Napoli's clash with Udinese

PA | 1mo
The Colombia international is on loan at the Italian club from Arsenal.

Goalkeeper David Ospina has been discharged from hospital and given the all clear after collapsing midway through Napoli’s Serie A match against Udinese on Sunday.

The 30-year-old, on loan at the Italian club from Arsenal, fell to the turf two minutes before half-time, having suffered an earlier head injury in a clash with Udinese’s Ignacio Pussetto.

Napoli coach Carlo Ancelotti later indicated that Ospina was recovering, the player having been given a CAT scan which came back all clear and then stayed in hospital overnight for observation.

On Monday afternoon, the club confirmed Ospina was now set for some rest and would not be joining up with Colombia during the international break.

“David Ospina was discharged this afternoon from the Pineta Grande Clinic where he had been hospitalised last night for a series of investigations and specialist visits. All tests are negative,” a statement from Napoli on the official club website read.

“Visits excluded any problems. The diagnosis is of vagal crisis [fainting] resolved within a few hours.

“The player has been advised a few days off and will not respond to the call-up of his national team.”

Ospina is on a season-long loan in Naples and reports suggest he is poised to sign a full-time deal with the Italian club.

Udinese had pulled back from two goals down to level the match when Ospina was forced off. Later goals from Arkadiusz Milik and Dries Mertens gave Napoli a 4-2 win as they continue to chase runaway Serie A leaders Juventus.

Napoli boss Ancelotti welcomed the positive update on Ospina.

He said on Twitter: “I’ve been visiting David and he’s fine. We expect him soon at Castel Volturno.”
