The Gunners keeper, on loan at Napoli, fell to the ground after suffering an earlier head injury in the Serie A clash against Udinese.
David Ospina collapsed on the pitch after he had suffered a head injury in Napoli’s clash against Udinese. Napoli players call for a stretcher to come on the pitch.
Five minutes from half-time, the referee stopped the game after concerned players alerted him to Ospina’s fall in front of his penalty box.
The 30-year-old Colombian had sustained a head injury and wore a huge bandage after colliding with Udinese forward Ignacio Pussetto.
Ospina looked unconscious as Napoli’s medical team rushed to offer him a treatment – but it was later reported he regained consciousness in hospital after being diagnosed with a head trauma and remain there overnight.
Napoli’s players looked horrified as he was being stretched off, with keeper Alex Meret readying himself to come on.
