The Senegal international was rushed to a health facility immediately after falling to the ground during a training session on Thursday
Alanyaspor confirmed that Khouma Babacar received heart spam in their pre-season camp in Burdur on Thursday.
It was alleged that the Senegalese attacker crashed to the ground during training and he was rushed to hospital immediately.
Babacar currently has a two-year loan from Sassuolo at the Turkish Super Light Club, and the deal is expected to expire at the end of the 2021-22 season, with Cagdas Atan’s team having the option to make his stay permanent.
Last season, 28-year-old Alanyaspor finished seventh in the Turkish top scorer list with his contribution of eight goals in 25 matches.
Following Thursday’s tragic event, the Turkish club said the former Fiorentina star had been placed under the close supervision of their club doctor.
“It was found that our soccer player Khouma Babacar, who became ill in the Burdur camp this morning, had a heart spasm as a result of the first examinations done at the Burdur State Hospital,” the club statement read.
‘Further examinations and treatment of our football player will be done in the Private Alanya Anadolu Hospital under the supervision of our club doctor Ismail Yetkin. We convey our best wishes to our football player and wish him a speedy recovery. ‘
The Thies-born striker began his professional career at Fiorentina and made his first goal-scoring debut for the Violets as a 16-year-old in a Coppa Italia match against Chievo Verona in January 2010.
Meanwhile, Babacar has also taken a step to reassure his friends and fans that he is in good condition with a post on Instagram.
‘It is going well with me. Thank you, everyone, ‘he wrote with a photo of himself on the hospital bed.
His colleagues, including Senegal captain Kalidou Koulibaly, responded to a few words of encouragement on his medical update.
Babacar made its international debut for the Teranga Lions in March 2017 during a friendly draw with Ivory Coast in France. He has made two appearances for Aliou Cisse’s team so far.
