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.
