Mikayil 'The Monster' Faye stretchered off after heavy collision in Barca Atletic clash

Mikayil Faye was forced to leave the pitch on a stretcher after a nasty collision with Barca Atletic goalkeeper Ander Astralaga on Sunday.

There were initial fears regarding the Senegalese's condition as it felt the centre-back was unconscious. However, Faye started reacting to the doctors' actions after a while.

"He's being provided with medical assistance. That was a severe blow. He is now having rest and his condition should be monitored. From what the doctor tells me, it is not too serious," Rafa Marquez told the media after his side's 3-1 win against Rayo Majadahonda.

Diario Sport's Sergi Capdevila reveals that the team are now relaxed since the setback isn't serious. The defender, nicknamed 'The Monster', feels better now.

Faye also scored his first goal in Blaugrana colours on Sunday.

Barcelona signed the 19-year-old for €1.5m last summer.
