Castrovilli kept in for observation

Fiorentina confirmed Gaetano Castrovilli will be kept in hospital overnight for observation after feeling “disoriented,” but should return home tomorrow.

The midfielder suddenly stopped during the 0-0 draw with Genoa this evening and felt dizzy, with coach Beppe Iachini telling reporters afterwards the player “didn’t know where he was.”

He did not seem to have a knock to the head during the game, so was taken to hospital for tests.

A statement from the club late on Saturday night confirmed the player was “disoriented following a trauma that went unnoticed at the time.

“Castrovilli is currently under observation at the Careggi hospital and is expected to return home tomorrow.”

The referee deserves a great deal of credit here, as he seemed to realise something was wrong before anyone else and stopped play to call the Fiorentina medics on to the field.
