AFCON 2019: Samuel Kalu’s participation in doubt after collapsing in training

Media Officer of the Super Eagles, Toyin Ibitoye, has cast doubt over Samuel Kalu’s further involvement in this year’s Africa Cup of Nations tournament.

Kalu has been confirmed “okay” and “stabilised”, after he collapsed during training on Friday.
The incident happened 24 hours before the Super Eagles open their AFCON campaign against new comers, Burundi.

Kalu reportedly fell while trying to take a corner-kick and was immediately rushed to the hospital.

Amid rumours that the Bordeaux forward suffered a heart attack, Ibitoye has revealed that they are waiting for the doctor’s final report.

“We are waiting for the doctor’s final reports of what really happened to him. They are still in hospital and we thank God he is in a stable condition,” he told SportingLife.

Commenting on the possibility of the player still playing a part in Nigeria 2019 AFCON campaign, Ibitoye said: “Life is sacred and much more important than football. What matters most now is his complete recovery and not the length of time he would be sidelined.”
