Ronald Araujo shocked FC Barcelona's win over Celta Vigo. The defender collapses after colliding with his own teammate on the field. An ambulance has to drive him from the field to the hospital. Now there is the all-clear.
FC Barcelona have given the all-clear after defender Ronald Araujo's shocking collision. The 23-year-old is conscious again but has suffered a concussion, his club said after the Catalans' 3-1 win over Celta Vigo. Further medical examinations are now pending, and it is still unclear how long Araujo will be out.
The game was interrupted for a total of around eight minutes. "The Araujo case was a bit scary for us. It's normal when something like this happens," Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang told Mundo Deportivo. "In the end he went to the hospital and the club said he had a concussion. I hope he's fine," said the former Dortmund striker.
It was the Gabonese who had previously consolidated his team's second place in the Spanish football championship. A brace before the Araujo shock in the 41st and 48th minutes keeps Barcelona behind arch-rivals Real Madrid in LaLiga. Memphis Depay scored the third goal (30'), Iago Aspas reduced Vigo's lead to 1:3 (50').
