09 Feb Verona youth Gresele combating for all times after being struck by practice line
The incident happened on Saturday when the 18-year-old had been with friends.
Gresele climbed on top of a train at the Porta Vescovo station and was struck by a line from above and suffered an electric shock which made him fall from 13 ft. 1 in. (four metres.).
He suffered a fractured vertebrae and a cerebral oedema. He was operated on on Monday and remains in intensive care.
Verona tweeted a message of support which learn: “We’re all with you, with these near you who, like us, take care of you. Come on Andrea!”
Native rivals Chievo also posted their support on Twitter. Their tweet learn: “Come on Andrea, we’re with you on this very tough second. Win your largest match!”
The correct-back has been a stand out performer for Verona’s youth team and was known as as much as the primary team for the Coppa Italia match with Cagliari in November.
