Serie A: Evan Ndicka feels unwell, the match between Udinese and Roma stopped

Concern in Italy. The match between Udinese and AS Roma, counting for the 32nd day of Serie A, was interrupted on Sunday after the discomfort of a Roma player, Evan Ndicka.

The Franco-Ivorian defender collapsed in the 70th minute and his teammates immediately called the club’s medical staff, who were quickly joined by the emergency services. Ndicka, conscious according to images from the DAZN platform, was evacuated on a stretcher and gave a thumbs up to say that he was fine. In a short message posted on social networks, his club confirmed that he was taken to hospital for examinations.

According to the Gazzetta dello Sport website, the player will remain under observation in a hospital in Udine, where he received a visit from his coach Daniele De Rossi and his captain Lorenzo Pellegrini, before their departure for Rome. But the latest examinations rule out, according to the sports daily, that he suffered a heart attack.

A little later in the evening, AS Roma posted a photo of the player on social media, confirming that he “felt better” but that he “will remain under observation for tests at the hospital” this Sunday evening.

The referee decided after long minutes of discussions with the Roma staff to stop the match. The score was 1-1 when the match was stopped. Passed by Auxerre then Frankfurt, the defender joined AS Roma last season.
