Sergio Rico: The Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper ‘feels very fortunate’ as he recovers.

Sergio Rico, goalkeeper for Paris Saint-Germain, “feels very fortunate” as he recovers from a catastrophic brain injury sustained in a horseback riding accident.

The 29-year-old was in a coma following the assault on May 28 in his native Spain.

On Wednesday, he was transferred from intensive care to a ward at a Seville hospital, where he is being treated further.

“I’m still working on my recovery, which is getting better by the day,” Rico stated in an Instagram story.

“I want to thank everyone who has shown and sent me love during these difficult times.”

“I consider myself extremely fortunate.” Thank you again to everyone, and I hope to see you all soon.”

Rico joined PSG on loan from Sevilla in 2019, with the move becoming permanent in September 2020. He previously spent a season on loan at Fulham in the 2018-19 Premier League season.

Rico experienced “a serious mishap due to a mule cart and a horse that hit him” at the time of the incident in May, according to his relatives.
