Punch in the chest
The employees of the N2 club (4th league) were initially rather reassuring. “More scared than harm, nothing serious, maybe a concussion,” assistant coach Zaki Noubir said on Maritima radio. “Bailly quickly came to our dressing room to offer his shirt and most importantly to hear from him,” he added.
