Video: Atletico trainer responds quickly as Moussa Dembele collapses in training

Atletico Madrid striker Moussa Dembele suffered a horrible few moments as the cameras caught the striker dropping to the ground without any control while in training yesterday.

The first few seconds of the video (below) make for a very grim viewing and the mind immediately thinks of the worst but football fans would be glad to hear that Dembele recovered eventually and even drove himself while making his way out of training ground.


Another thing one needs to point out is the quick reaction from an Atletico coach who acted like a trained emergency responder and went straight for the head and neck and secured his airway as he tilted the Frenchman to a recovery position.

With just two appearances so far, safe to say that the former Celtic striker has not had the best of times since joining the La Liga giants back in January in a loan move with an option to buy for €33.5M from Lyon.
