Papa Souare on the mend

Crystal Palace released a statement on their website on Tuesday afternoon offering good news on the condition of 26-year-old full-back Papa Souare.

The Senegalese star was involved in a horrific car crash earlier this week and there were reports that he was in a life-threatening condition after being air-lifted to hospital.

Read the statement from the Crystal Palace website below.

“Pape Souare has this morning undergone surgery on both his jaw and thigh. Thanks to the fantastic response of the emergency services who cut him from the car and the amazing surgeons, doctors and staff at the Royal London Hospital he is expected to make a full recovery and should be discharged on Friday.”

Palace donate to London Air Ambulance

As well as offering an update on Papa Souare’s health, Crystal Palace used the opportunity to thank the London Air Ambulance and called for people to join them in making a donation.

“We would like to make special mention of the London Air Ambulance service who flew Pape directly from the scene to the hospital ensuring that he rapidly had access to the very best medical care. The club note that this organisation is a charity and completely funded from donations as such we are making a contribution and would urge everyone to support this invaluable service for the people of London.”
