Hey The match between RKC and Ajax, which was held on Saturday, was stopped due to a serious injury suffered by Etienne Vaessen, the home team’s goalkeeper, who lost consciousness after colliding with Brian Probbe. In photos of the play it is possible to see that the RKC goalkeeper was hit in the head.
Medical teams quickly entered the field and a cloth was placed around the player so that the intervention would not be filmed on television.
After a few minutes, and in the face of obvious concern from his teammates and opponents, who were clearly affected, the referee ended the match, even before the 90th minute. Ajax was ahead (2-3).
“The game is over. We will provide more news as soon as possible. Thank you and have a nice trip home,” can be read in the official note from RKC, on the X social network.
Best members of RKC,
De wedstrijd is a clear goal. We’re more wet, we’ll be here this year. You don’t have to worry about having something good at home.#Rakkaja

However, Etienne Vaessen was taken off the field using a stretcher, and an ambulance is already ready at Mandemakers Stadium to take the goalkeeper to hospital.
The situation quickly gained great importance in the Netherlands and many clubs forgot about the rivalry and left messages of strength to Weessen.
