Ghana international Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu has revealed that he is in a good condition after being rushed to hospital on Wednesday night in Italy.
Hellas Verona announced that Emmanuel Agyemang Badu is in hospital after he was diagnosed with a pulmonary embolism – a blood clot in the lungs.
The statement confirmed the 28-year-old Ghana international is being kept in at the Sacro Cuore hospital in Negrar for treatment and further tests following “a pulmonary embolism incident.
However, the former Asante Kotoko star on Thursday revealed that he is the best of condition despite being rushed to the hospital.
He took to his whatsapp status to assure his friends that he was in good condition. He wrote, “Good morning and thank you all for your well wishes. I am in good condition.”
He is expected to remain in the hospital for a few days for further observation. Badu joined Verona on a season-long loan from Udinese, who signed him in 2010.
Badu’s only prior stint away from Udinese before 2019 was in 2017 when he transferred to Turkish side Bursaspor on a season-long loan which was ended abruptly by injury.
He only returned to the pitch in March to end last season with four appearances for Udinese.
The Fifa U20 World Cup winner featured for Ghanaian sides Berekum Arsenal and Asante Kotoko, as well as Spanish outfit Recreativo Huelva before joining The Black and Whites.
