Good news for Roma and Evan Ndicka who appears to be out of danger following yesterday’s health scare in the match against Udinese at the Dacia Arena.

On their website, Roma posted the following official update announcing Ndicka’s discharge from the hospital in Udine.

“Following acute precordial pain and atypical alternations in the EKG administered in the first aid room at the stadium, the player Evan Ndicka was hospitalized at the Santa Maria della Misericordia Hospital in Udine.”

“First and second-level cardiological tests were administered that were negative for cardiac pathologies. In light of the last tests undergone this morning, the medical situation is compatible with a thoracic trauma with minimal left pneumothorax. The player was discharged and will undergo additional tests in Rome.”

They added, “AS Roma wishes to thank Udinese Calcio, referee Mr. Pairetto, the public present at the stadium in Udine and the medical and health staff at the Santa Maria della Misericordia Hospital in Udine for their great professionalism and availability.”

“In those frantic minutes of apprehension, we all together demonstrated sports values and placed protecting life at first place.”
