Following a horrendous incident during stoppage time of the dramatic 2-2 draw with Everton, Michael Keane suffered a head injury after a clash with team-mate Idrissa Gueye.

The collision occurred inside the penalty area in front of the North Stand and the sound of the collision visibly shocked many supporters inside the ground.

The 25-year-old received treatment on the pitch for around six minutes, he received oxygen and was stretchered off in a neck brace and head protection.

The Ambulance was seen outside the main stand entrance after the game and after receiving treatment from both Everton and AFC Bournemouth medical staff he was moved to Poole Hospital.

On Sunday morning, Everton released an update on Keane’s condition.

Keane suffered a fractured skull in the collision, however, things sound as positive as they could, with Everton describing it as a mere hairline fracture with Keane set to return to training in around a month.

AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe told the Daily Echo

“I wish him well on behalf of everyone at Bournemouth.

“I don’t like to see any player go off with that type of injury. It looked a really bad clash so our thoughts are with him.”

I hope he takes all the time he needs to make a full and absolute recovery, comes back and resumes his career fully.

Best wishes and good luck to the lad and his family : ) – Join the conversation, click here.
