Sno, 23, 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.

Doctors now expect him to spend two weeks in a hospital in the Dutch captial. An Ajax statement read: "Sno is doing well, and there is no change in his situation since Monday night."

The Ajax squad met with team officials on Tuesday morning for an update on Sno's condition before their usual training session.

Ajax reserve team assistant Albert van der Dussen told AD: "At first I thought he stumbled, but very quickly everyone realised there was something seriously wrong due to the foam around his mouth.

"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,'' Van der Dussen said. "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.''
