David Ospina collapses after head injury during Napoli game

David Ospina was taken to hospital after collapsing with a head injury

The original incident occurred early on in the match when he dived out to meet a low cross and collided with Udinese's Argentinean striker Ignacio Pussetto in the seventh minute.

"I haven't had a chance to talk to my son yet because he's still in intensive care", he told Radio CRC. He was given a CAT and a series of checks.

"The national team spoke to a doctor from Medellin to understand more about what happened and he said he'd be off the pitch for a fortnight".

It is not yet known whether he will remain part of the Colombia squad which is due to face Japan on Friday and South Korea on March 26.

According to a BBC report, the Colombian worldwide was subjected to treatment on the pitch, before being stretchered off. Ospina was conscious when he was taken off the field and transported to the nearby San Paolo hospital.

Napoli coach Carlo Ancelotti visited Ospina on Monday morning at the Pineta Grande Clinic where he was transferred and placed under observation for 24 hours after Sunday's game. Napoli will be hoping Ospina makes a full and quick recovery following the worrying scenes on Sunday.

Ospina's contract at the Emirates expires at the end of this season, but his future at the club remains uncertain with Arsenal reportedly looking to sign a new shot stopper.

Seko Fofana found the target as Udinese suffered a 4-2 defeat to Napoli in Sunday's Italian Serie A encounter.
