Khedira admitted to hospital

Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira was admitted to hospital after a dangerous blow to the chin in the 5-0 Copa del Rey romp over Cornella.

The incident occurred during the second half when the German international challenged for a header with an opposition player and he immediately needed medical attention, although he returned to play before needing to be taken off after feeling dizzy.

Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti confirmed afterwards that Khedira would be spending the night in hospital as a precautionary measure.

“It’s only a blow and hopefully he’ll be fine tomorrow,” the Italian told reporters.
