Verona midfielder Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu says he is in ‘good condition’ after being diagnosed with a pulmonary microembolism – a blood clot in the lungs.

Badu will stay at Sacro Cuore hospital in Negrar for the next few days to undergo tests and receive treatment, but the Ghanaian gave a positive update to his well-wishers.

“Good morning and thank you all for your well wishes,” he wrote on Instagram.

“I’m in good condition. God bless us all. Much love.”

The 29-year-old only joined Verona from Udinese last month, on loan with an option to buy, and had been a regular performer throughout preseason.
