Roma’s defender, Evan Ndicka (24 years old), has been discharged from the hospital and will undergo further examinations in Rome after falling on the pitch during the match against Udinese on Sunday, the Serie A club announced on Monday.
The player born in Paris, who represents Ivory Coast, was stretchered off after falling on the pitch at the 18th minute, with the match later interrupted at 1-1.

Ndicka was conscious but visibly in pain, rubbing his chest with his right hand as the medical staff rushed to him. Roma later stated that the player was “in good spirits”.

“Cardiological exams of first and second level were carried out, which resulted negative for cardiac pathologies,” Roma said in their latest statement.

“In light of the latest tests conducted this morning, the medical situation is compatible with a thoracic trauma with minimal left pneumothorax.”

Roma thanked the referee, the fans present at the Udine stadium, and the hospital staff.

“In those frantic minutes of apprehension, we all together demonstrated the values of sport and prioritized the protection of life,” added the Italian capital club.
