Former Seattle Sounders striker, Obafemi Martins has visited his teammate and Senegalese footballer, Demba Ba at the hospital.
Martins visited the striker after he suffered a horrific broken leg that could end his career while in action for Shanghai Shenhua in the Chinese Super League on Sunday.
The 31-year-old Nigerian international said, “I just want to wish him soonest recovery, it’s really painful” said the Nigerian forward while by his bedside.
Ba collapsed in agony in the 63rd minute following a challenge from Shanghai SIPG’s Sun Xiang during the highly intense match in Shangai.
The former Newcastle and Chelsea player was stretchered from the pitch after a prolonged period of treatment in which the striker received oxygen.
The striker, who moved to the Chinese Super League side from Besiktas in July 2015, has been receiving support from the football community including his teammates who took time off training to visit him.
