Pescara Coach Zdenek Zeman and pundit Aldo Agroppi are both in hospital after being taken ill.
Zeman is suffering from kidney stones and Pescara confirmed he will stay under observation for the next 24-48 hours.
The former Lazio and Roma tactician had asked to leave the hospital, but doctors warned he requires further tests and treatment.
It is looking increasingly unlikely Zeman will be fit enough to sit on the bench for Saturday’s Serie B game against Gubbio.
In far worse condition is legendary pundit Agroppi, who played 212 games for Torino and was a Coach at among others Fiorentina, Perugia and Como.
The 67-year-old was rushed to a Livorno hospital in an ambulance following a heart attack and has undergone two different operations.
According to reports he had an angioplasty to open up a blocked artery, then had further problems and was fitted with a pacemaker.
