Roma’s Ivorian Defender Ndicka Cleared For Training After Collapsing On Field

Roma Defender, Evan Ndicka, has received the green light to resume team training.

The Ivorian and Roma defender recently suffered a collapsed lung after what was initially suspected as a heart attack – the diagnosis ruled out this as a possibility and pointed to thoracic trauma instead.

According to Il Messaggero, Ndicka underwent more fitness tests with the supervision of Roma’s cardiologist.

The tests showed positive signs and the player has been given the green light to resume group training.

The newspaper suggests Ndicka is aiming to be called up for the match against Cagliari in the upcoming weekend round of Serie A fixtures.

Collapse Of Ivorian Defender Ndicka Stops Roma Vs Udinese Game

The Serie A Roma Versus Udinese game was abandoned after the 24-year-old Ivory Coast player collapsed in the 72nd minute and was taken off on a stretcher on Sunday April 14.

He appeared to be conscious as he left the pitch, with the score 1-1.

After Ndicka’s collapse, Roma’s medical staff and emergency services were called on to the pitch and after discussions with the referee, the match was abandoned.

Ndicka joined Roma on a free transfer from Eintracht Frankfurt in 2023 and has made 19 appearances for the Italian club.

Roberto Pereyra had given Udinese an early lead before striker Romelu Lukaku equalised for Roma.
