Margao (Goa), March 13 (IANS) Mumbai City FC defender Amey Ranawade is stable and under observation, the Indian Super League (ISL) said on Saturday.

“News coming from the hospital is that Amey Ranawade is in a stable condition. He is still under observation,” the league said in its statement.

Both sets of players looked shocked as Ranawade received medical attention and it led to a lengthy stoppage in the first half. An ambulance was also brought in and while Ranawade looked keen to continue after getting up, he was dissoriented and was ushered into the vehicle.
Mumbai went on to win the match 2-1 thanks to a late winner from Bipin Singh, thus winning their maiden ISL title.
