Victor Osimhen was scheduled to spend the night in the hospital after sustaining a hit to the head on Napoli duties.
On Sunday Napoli forward Victor Osimhen underwent hospital tests, after being taken off on a stretcher following a hit to the head in the team’s 4-2 Serie A loss to Atalanta.
Osimhen collided with Atalanta’s Cristian Romero and dropped to the turf in the closing moments of the game, with reports in Italy claiming he then lost consciousness on the pitch.
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.”
