Daley Blind collapsed on the pitch for the second time in a year while playing in a friendly for Ajax on Tuesday evening.
The Dutch side were taking on Hertha Berlin and Blind required medical attention after falling to the turf and yelling in pain during the second half.
Blind was diagnosed with heart muscle inflammation late last year after suffering from dizziness during Ajax's clash with Valencia in December.
He was substituted last night and manager Erik ten Haag explained that his subcutaneous implantable cardioverter defibrillator (S-ICD) went off.
"Daley Blind's ICD went off," he begun per Metro.
"He got subbed off straight away and he is feeling okay now, he is feeling fine. We will do research about this now."
The former Manchester United man was communicating with teammates as he left the field without needing assistance.
He will undergo further tests at hospital later on Wednesday morning.
Fans have reacted to the incident and they're hoping the defender does what is best for his health.
Thinking of Daley Blind again tonight after he collapsed on a football pitch for the second time in a year. Really hope he takes good care of himself and does what's best for him and his family.

Daley blind gotta retire, not trying to see him die on the pitch. He has much more value as a human than he does a footballer

Stiill pretty much in shock of what happened to Daley Blind. I hope he is completely fine, I hope it so much. But God this is becoming so freaking concerning now.

Blind is best known for his time in England and he spent four years at Old Trafford.
During that time, he won the FA Cup, Carabao Cup and Europa League.
He returned to Ajax in 2018 and helped the club reach the Champions League semi-finals last year.
