Gomis: "I am feeling well now"

5th March 2015

Bafe Gomis has declared himself fit and well after fainting during the 3-2 defeat at Tottenham Hotspur.

The French striker collapsed early on at White Hart Lane following Nacer Chadli's sixth-minute opener.

And although Gomis will remain in hospital overnight for precautionary measures, the 29-year-old declared himself healthy and thanked fans for their messages of support.

"I wanted to reassure you concerning my health," said Gomis. "It actually looks much scarier than it is physically dangerous, and I am feeling well now.

"I have been under a great deal of stress and fatigue due to my father's health, which requires me to go back and forth from France.

"I was disappointed that I couldn't help my team tonight, but now everything is back in order.

"I also want to thank everyone for their support and get well messages."
