Saul Niguez is still in Germany after suffering a blow to the kidney during Atletico Madrid’s game against Bayer Leverkusen.

Atletico lost the match 1-0 but Saul had to depart early after picking up the injury, and Marca reports he is still in hospital in Germany and it’s not know when he’ll be ready to return to Spain.

A catheter had to be used to train the blood from Saul’s kidney, which is understood to be common practice with injuries of this time.

Jose Antonio Niguez, Saul’s father, and Dr. Villalon are both accompanying Saul for the duration of his hospital stay.
