The 51-year-old became unwell in the 24th minute in the Liga 1 fixture in the National Arena, the club said. He was given a bottle of water and could be seen breathing heavily on the sidelines shortly before he fainted.

Play was halted for 15 minutes as he received treatment, before he was taken to Bucharest’s Floreasca Hospital. Neagoe, who only joined the Liga 1 side in June, is stable and will remain under observation at the hospital, local media later reported.

In 2016 Dinamo Bucharest midfielder Patrick Ekeng died, aged 26, of a suspected heart attack after collapsing on the pitch.
