MADRID, May 5 (Xinhua) -- Athletic Blibao winger Markel Susaeta was rushed to hospital on Thursday after suffering a collapsed lung.

The 23-year-old winger suffered the problem during the Thursday morning training session after suffering a "spontaneous pneumothorax" while preparing for Saturday's La Liga match at home to Levante.

Susaeta, who scored his first goal of the season in last Monday 's 2-1 away defeat to Espanyol, was taken to hospital in San Sebastian, where his condition has been confirmed as "depending on evolution" by the club's medical services. He is not play at the weekend and could miss the rest of the season.
