Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina discharged from hospital after head collision

Arsenal goalkeeper, David Ospina, who is currently on loan at Napoli has been discharged from the hospital after he collapsed unconscious on the pitch following a knock to the head during a Serie A game against Udinese on Sunday.

The 30-year-old Colombian goalkeeper received treatment after colliding with striker Ignacio Pussetto ten minutes into the game at the Stadio San Paolo. He was treated on the pitch and returned to play with bandages around his head.

However, 41 minutes later, Ospina collapsed to the ground as medics rushed onto the pitch, with the player stretchered off and transferred to hospital where he was admitted.

On Monday afternoon, Napoli confirmed that the father of two was discharged from hospital and has since returned home to his family.

“David Ospina was this afternoon discharged from the clinic where he had been admitted last night for a series of investigations and specialist visits,” read a Napoli statement.

“All tests are negative. The visits [ruled out] any problems. The player has been advised to have a few days off and will not respond to the call-up of his national team.”

Ospina has also been forced to withdraw from his country’s upcoming friendlies against Japan and South Korea as a precaution.
