Ndey, 25, fell awkwardly on his head after 17 minutes as he tried to avoid a collision with Zamalek goalie Ahmed Shenawy in their CAF Confederation Cup Group B Day 3 clash on Sunday, 26 July 2015 at the Petro Sport Stadium in Cairo. He was subsequently replaced by Kader Bidimbou with Zamalek going on to win 2-0.
In a follow-up to the situation, CAF Medical Manager, Boubakary Sidiki visited the medical facility on Monday (27 July 2015) afternoon to get first-hand information on the update of the player’s health.
“He is receiving the necessary medical care for such a situation in excellent conditions. The personnel (AFSH) have been very supportive and professional in their approach, giving him all the attention and care needed. Both teams (Zamalek and AC Leopards) are working hand-in-hand to get him back to his best,” said Sidiki.
In a show of support, Zamalek captain Hazem Emam led his colleagues to visit Ndey at the hospital.
Ndey led Leopards to CAF Confederation Cup glory in 2012 beating Djoliba of Mali 4-3 on aggregate in the final. He was also named in the Congo squad for their 2014 African Nations Championship (CHAN) in South Africa.
