Bordeaux star Samuel Kalu has reportedly collapsed early into a Ligue 1 game at Olympique Marseille last night.
The club announced that the Super Eagles player will have to undergo further assessment after he slumped on his own without any other contact four minutes into the game.
Kalu was subsequently surrounded by players of both teams as he was attended to by medics, just like Christian Eriksen at the just concluded Euro 2020.
The winger later returned to the pitch but was then replaced in the 14th minute.
Recall that Kalu had suffered a heart attack at the 2019 AFCON in Egypt.
However, the Super Eagles maintained that he only suffered from dehydration.
Last season, Kalu suffered several setbacks both on and off the pitch – he reported late for pre-season, contacted Covid-19 and he was also sidelined for several weeks after he was injured on Super Eagles duty in Austria.
