AS Roma coach Jose Mourinho has offered to send his jacket as a get-well gift to a fan who was hospitalized on Monday after he collapsed during their Serie A game against Spezia. Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport reported that a 23-year-old supporter went into cardiac arrest during the first half and was treated with a defibrillator before being taken to hospital.
Fans in the Curva Sud area of the stadium remained silent for the rest of the match, which ended in a 2-0 win for Roma.
“I only found out after the game. Of course we hope that everything goes well with him,” said Mourinho.
“If so, he should give his address and it would be my pleasure to send him my coat so that he will wear it the next time he comes here in the cold.”
Mourinho’s side is sixth in the Serie A standings, 12 points behind leader Inter Milan.
