Horoya AC lost their goalkeeper Khadim Ndiaye after he suffered a double leg break after colliding with his own team-mate.  At that time, team-mate Boubacar Samassekou had the same idea and the incident resulted in that goalkeeper's broken leg.

The incident visibly left Ndiaye's team-mates stunned as he laid stricken on the floor during their 5-0 defeat. It also left referee Bamlak Tessema, an Ethiopian official, shocked too.

After being attended to on the pitch, he was finally carried off on a stretcher.

The club confirmed on Sunday that Ndiaye had undergone surgery in Rabat.

Horoya announced on social media that the goalkeeper will remain at the Cheick Zaidi University hospital where he will continue his recovery. Horoya declined to release information about the length of his recovery period.

The 34-year-old's contract was due to end this year but the club 'wanted to ensure his immediate future by extending his contract for three years from today (14 April).'

Horoya's owner Antonio Souare has also offered Ndiaye a role at the club as part of the technical staff in the future and will pay for his training in Europe.
