Napoli Forward Underwent Hospital Tests after 4-2 with Atalanta


On Sunday, after being taken off on a stretcher following a hit to the head in the team’s 4-2 Serie A loss to Atalanta, Napoli forward Victor Osimhen underwent hospital tests.

In the closing moments of the game, Osimhen collided with Atalanta’s Cristian Romero and dropped to the turf.

Reports in Italy claim that he then lost consciousness on the pitch.

After sustaining a hit to the head during Napoli duties, therefore, Victor Osimhen was scheduled to spend the night in the hospital.

Napoli said that only the 22-year-old had experienced “head trauma” that involved testing to decide whether any harm had occurred.

In a statement, Napoli said: “The player will remain in Bergamo until tomorrow [Monday] under the clinical observation of the [Napoli] health manager Raffaele Canonico.”
