Nantes reserve player who suffered heart attack in training wakes up from coma

Nantes have today announced that the reserve player who suffered a heart attack in training on Thursday and was rushed to hospital has woken up from his artificial coma.

The unnamed player remains hospitalised and is being monitored, with the club indicating that he is “slowly” recovering. RMC Sport report that the incident took place at the end of Thursday’s training session, after which reserves manager Stéphane Ziani and a young physio on site had performed CPR on the player for a while, before emergency services arrived.

The 19-year-old was later placed in an artificial coma, and the reserve team’s match against Andrézieux, initially scheduled for Saturday, was postponed.
