Rahman, the former Chelsea stalwart now donning PAOK’s colours, lost consciousness following a collision in mid-air, sending shockwaves through both the players and the crowd.

The stadium reverberated with urgent calls for medical assistance as Rahman lay motionless on the field, prompting swift intervention from the medical teams. After being revived, Rahman was promptly rushed to the hospital for further evaluation and treatment.

The incident occurred in the 115th minute of the match, which had gone into extra time after a 2-2 tie in regulation time. He received rapid medical assistance on the pitch and eventually regained consciousness.

However, as a precaution, he was taken away from the field in an ambulance and is currently receiving additional care in the hospital.

The match was briefly delayed as a result of the incident with the referee eventually ending it and going to a penalty shootout. Panathinaikos won the shootout 6-5, ensuring their place in the Greek Cup final.
