Gregory Pujol hospitalised with a collapsed lung

Valenciennes striker Gregory Pujol has been hospitalised after suffering a collapsed lung.

The 33-year-old was substituted after 33 minutes of the 1-1 draw against Lyon at the weekend after suffering a heavy fall and he was eventually admitted to hospital and given treatment.

He is in the hospital and should be released tomorrow or Thursday.

The lung is slightly off. He suffered a pneumothorax (collapsed lung) and an emergency drainage because there was an effusion of blood.
