Cesar Azpilicueta

Chelsea's captain, Cesar Azpilicueta, has been discharged from the hospital three days after sustaining a concussion during his team's defeat by Southampton in the Premier League.

The club reported on Tuesday that he was inadvertently kicked in the head by Southampton's Sekou Mara during the second half and had to be carried off the Stamford Bridge pitch on a stretcher.

In adherence to the important concussion protocols, the club's medical team is closely monitoring Cesar's condition to ensure his safety. "Cesar observed training today, before he starts working towards returning to the pitch," the club stated.

Azpilicueta's return for Chelsea's upcoming match against Tottenham Hotspur away on Sunday is dependent on the Football Association and Premier League concussion protocols.
