Argentina boss Lionel Scaloni discharged from Spanish hospital after traffic accident

Argentina national team’s head coach, Lionel Scaloni has been discharged after being briefly hospitalised on Tuesday on the Spanish holiday island of Mallorca.

This was after he was hit by a car while riding a bike, local officials said.

The 40-year-old was knocked to the ground by a vehicle that was reversing near a school in the port of Puerto Portals, a spokesman for the municipality of Calvia told media.

The driver called the emergency services, who then transported Scaloni to the Son Espases hospital in Palma de Mallorca, the capital of Spain’s Balearic Islands.

Scaloni suffered a “facial injury” and “several bruises” in the accident, local emergency services said.

“He is now on his way home after being discharged from hospital,” the Argentine football federation said on Twitter.

Scaloni will oversee the team’s Copa America campaign this year, with Argentina bidding to win their first major trophy since 1993.
