Silvian Cristescu, the sports director of the opposition, went to see his former colleague and said: ‘It will remain two days under observation. He was asleep. His wife and his daughter are here next to him.

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