Former Salernitana defender Rigobert Song has been rushed to hospital in Yaounde and is reportedly fighting for his life after suffering an aneurysm.
The 40-year-old retired defender is currently the head coach of Chad’s senior national team and spent a brief spell with Salernitana, as well as playing against Italy at the 1998 World Cup.
Fellow Cameroonian Samuel Eto’o has posted a picture of Song with the caption “I wish you a lot of courage and a speedy recovery big brother!” on social media, while former Liverpool team-mates Jamie Carragher, Stan Collymore and Robbie Fowler also posted messages of sympathy.
Song also turned out for Liverpool, West Ham United and Lens.
