Stoian watches his team from hospi­tal

New Straits Times - - Sport -

MI­LAN: Cro­tone for­ward Adrian Stoian watched his team win a key Serie A rel­e­ga­tion match against Udi­nese from his hospi­tal win­dow on Sun­day.

The Ro­ma­nian was rushed to hospi­tal at the start of May af­ter suf­fer­ing what the club de­scribed as a virus, al­though fur­ther de­tails have not been given.

The San Gio­vanni hospi­tal in Cro­tone backs onto the mod­est Enzo Scida Sta­dium and Stoian was spot­ted at one of the win­dows with a drip at­tached to his arm watch­ing his side as they beat Udi­nese 1-0 at home.

Serie A debu­tants Cro­tone were seen as rel­e­ga­tion cer­tain­ties in mid-March but have won five and drawn two of their last seven games, giv­ing them a chance of pulling off a great es­cape.

Al­though they re­main in the bot­tom three, they are only one point be­hind Em­poli and two adrift of Genoa, the two sides im­me­di­ately above the drop zone, with two games to play.
