Dinamo Bucharest manager Eugen Neagoe suffered a suspected heart attack during the club's 2-0 defeat to Craiova on Sunday afternoon.

The 51-year-old, who could be seen breathing heavily in the opening minutes of the Liga 1 game, collapsed in the 25th minute of the match.

An ambulance soon arrived on the scene at Stadionul Dinamo stadium as the game was halted for 15 minutes.

As you can see in the footage above, players were visibly in shock as he received medical care.

Neagoe is now believed to be in a stable condition at Bucharest's Floreasca Hospital and can communicate with others, according to Romanian publication GSP.

In fact, the report claims that his first words after regaining consciousness were "what's the score?"

Dinamo president Florin Prunea said the defibrillator saved his life.

"We were close to a tragedy." he said. "I saw the defibrillator send a discharge, it saved Neagoe's life."

A physician from the hospital gave an update on Neagoe's condition.

"He is conscious, stable and under investigation.

"I can not tell you what happened on the ambulance. He was brought here consciously and stable in terms of vital functions.

"He told us that the diagnosis data should only be provided through the family. We do not know how long he will stay here. Cardiology colleagues will decide."

Silvian Cristescu, who is sporting director at Craiova, visited the 51-year-old manager in hospital after the incident.

"He will remain two days under observation. He was asleep. His wife and his daughter are here next to him." he said via The Daily Mail.

"This is football, we chose this job. There are so many coaches who have heart problems and they could train further.'

"I do not know if he will stay at Dinamo. For now he has to take a longer break. In clubs with many fans there is always pressure."
