It has been reported that Kaiserslauten manager Jeff Strasser suffered a heart attack at half-time of Wednesday’s match against Darmstadt.
The Bundesliga 2 clash at Darmstadt’s Merck-Stadion am Bollenfalltor was subsequently abandoned while the 43-year-old was taken to hospital.

Tonight, Kaiserslauten’s official Twitter profile posted: “Dear FCK fans, as you have probably already noticed, the away game in Darmstadt is cancelled.

“Reason is a medical incident. Our head coach Jeff Strasser is on his way to the hospital.”

They later added: “Dear fans of the FCK and of the @sv98, we would like to thank you warmly for your great understanding, the popularity and the very moving reactions today thank you in the stadium.
“Thank you also for the many well wishes that reach us from all channels.”

Strasser was appointed manager of Kaiserslauten in September after the sacking of Norbert Meier.

He played as a defender for clubs including Metz, Kaiserslauten and Borussia Monchengladbach.

Darmstadt tweeted: “Though we love football so much, there are so many more important things in life.

The match was abandoned while still at 0-0.
