Milan: AC Milan defender Luca Antonelli has been taken to hospital with a suspected serious head injury after a clash in the Serie A giant's league game with Udinese on Sunday.

Antonelli, an Italy international, was carried off on a stretcher before the hour mark after falling awkwardly during the league fixture at Milan's shared San Siro stadium.

As he lay on the ground, a teammate reached inside his mouth to make sure he did not swallow his tongue.

Milan have yet to publish a statement although conflicting reports said Antonelli was in hospital after suffering either a head or neck injury.
