Ghanaian midfielder Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu says he is doing well after being hospitalized in Italy with blood clots in his lungs.

His Serie A club Hellas Verona said he was admitted on Wednesday evening after being diagnosed with pulmonary embolism.

But Agyemang-Badu said on Thursday morning that he "was doing much better."

The 28-year-old is expected to remain in the hospital for a few days for further observation.

Agyemang-Badu is on loan at Hellas Verona, with and obligation to buy, from Serie A rivals Udinese.

He was not in the Ghana squad for the Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt after only returning to action in March, following an 11-month injury.

Badu is highly regarded in the West African country after scoring the winning penalty for Ghana to win the FIFA U-20 World Cup in 2009.
