It’s a miracle. After Sergio Rico (29‧ Paris Saint-Germain) woke up, communication became possible.
France’s ‘Le Parisien’ reported on the 27th (Korean time), “Rico continues to improve. He is still in the intensive care unit, but according to his wife, he is able to communicate with his relatives.”
According to the media, Rico’s wife said, “Things are getting better, we can communicate now. Rico calls us by name, knows who we are, and has a good memory.”먹튀검증
The Spanish national made his professional debut in 2014 after spending his youth days with Sevilla. In his debut season, he played 37 matches in all competitions and played a significant role in the team’s 2014-15 season winning the European Football Association (UEFA) Europa League (UEL). Since then, he has been the main goalkeeper for three consecutive seasons.
Rico went through Fulham (on loan) and wore a PSG uniform in 2019. He was classified as a sub-keeper. He struggled to play, behind Keylor Navas and Gianluigi Donnarumma. Eventually, he went on loan to Mallorca through the winter transfer market for the 2021-22 season. At that time, he also ate rice with Lee Kang-in, and prevented the team from relegation by playing 15 games in all competitions. He returned to PSG again in the 2022-23 season, but was unable to avoid his bench. Rico has not played in a single game all season.
After the season ended, something unfortunate happened. Rico, who went to Spain, was in a coma after a horseback riding accident. British public broadcaster ‘BBC’ reported in May, “PSG goalkeeper Rico is in serious condition after a horse-riding accident and is receiving treatment. He suffered head trauma and was taken to the hospital by helicopter.”
Since then, Rico has been known to be in a state of unconsciousness due to ‘traumatic brain damage’. ‘BBC’ added: “A PSG spokesperson said ‘he is in serious condition’.” Soccer fans who heard the news left cheering messages such as “Cheer up, Rico”, “I hope you get better”, “Cheer up”, and “Everyone is with you”.
Did the wind touch you? Rico woke up after 3 weeks. On the 19th, France’s ‘RMC Sports’ reported, “Rico has come out of a coma. He has been in a coma for several weeks and has now regained consciousness. After opening his eyes, Rico recognized his relatives in the room. I had simple communication with the people around me.”
According to ‘Le Parisien’, it is now possible to communicate through words, and most of the memories have been recovered. However, he still does not remember the circumstances at the time of the accident.
