Doctors saved Sno's life - Coach

Sno suffered serious heart problems during an Ajax reserve game at Vitesse Arnhem on Monday night. The 23-year-old midfielder fell to the ground 18 minutes after coming on as a half-time substitute and was treated on the pitch for more than 10 minutes before being taken to hospital. "At first I thought he stumbled, but very quickly everyone realised there was something seriously wrong due to the foam around his mouth," coach Albert van der Dussen told AD. "Fortunately our doctor and physio were there quickly. They have performed an heroic act and saved his life. "They gave him the defibrillator three times. We feared for his life, he was very lucky." Sno, who started his career at Feyenoord before spells at NAC Breda, Celtic, Ajax and Bristol City, finally came round. "He looked surprised to see all those people there," added Van der Dussen. "I don't think he realised what was going on but everyone was greatly relieved. "The ambulance crew then took over and took him to hospital."
