It was an event that shocked both the players and the audience. At the start of the match against Marseille, Bordeaux striker Samuel Kalou fell on the field. We thought about what happened with Eriksen at the European Commission, says his colleague Remy Oudin.
The entire football world came to a halt on June 12 when Christian Eriksen collapsed on the pitch at the European Commission premiere between Denmark and Finland. A little over two months ago, an event occurred that brought back unpleasant memories.
And in Sunday’s match between Bordeaux and Marseille in the French League, Samuel Kalou collapsed in the sixth minute.
Soon, his anxious teammates stood by Calu while frantically gesturing at the medical team. When Kalou received treatment on the field, Bordeaux and Marseille players formed a human wall around him.
– The incident gave us goosebumps and was shocking to the players and the audience. We thought about what happened with Eriksen at the European Commission, says Remy Oudin after the match according to AFP.
I tried to continue playing
After a few uncertain minutes, the 23-year-old Kalou managed to stand up and walked off the pitch with the help of some teammates.
“Everyone was scared but fortunately it ended well,” says Odin.
Samuel Kalu even tried to play but was substituted in the 14th minute by Remi Oudin. The cause of the collapse is not clear, but the 30-degree heat is believed to have had an effect.
– Together with the doctors, we decided not to take risks. In such events, football comes second, says Bordeaux coach Vladimir Petkovic.
The match between Bordeaux and Marseille ended 2-2.
