Augsburg (AP) – A few hours after his bad collision in the Bundesliga game in Augsburg, Schalke’s football pro Mark Uth gave everything clear.
“Good evening everyone. I’m fine … I’ll probably be released from hospital tomorrow,” the 29-year-old ex-international wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of herself in the hospital bed. And: “Thank you for your many well-being wishes.”
Uth suffered a concussion in the 2-2 draw in Augsburg after a header duel and a fall on the lawn, his club said. “It was dramatic, we didn’t know what was going on,” said Sascha Riether, coordinator of the Schalke licensed players division, after the game at Sky.
A few minutes after the whistle, after a header duel with FCA defender Felix Uduokhai in midfield, Uth hit the ground with his head on the landing and remained dazed. The attacker had to be treated on the lawn for minutes. His neck was stabilized and he was given an IV. Uth was eventually taken to hospital on a stretcher and accompanied by the team doctor. He had to stay there overnight, it was said that evening.
