Dinamo Bucharest fans honor Patrick Ekeng with tifo at cup final

Wednesday May 18th, 2016

Dinamo Bucharest fans honored the late Patrick Ekeng with a massive tifo ahead of the club's Romanian Cup final against Cluj on Tuesday. 

Ekeng, 26, collapsed on the field and died soon after on May 6. The 26-year-old Cameroonian midfielder passed of a suspected heart attack, and the ambulance that transported him to the hospital reportedly did not have a defibrillator, which sparked outrage and has caused for FIFA's chief medical officer to call for better medical standards and accommodations across all stadiums.

Dinamo Buchrest fans have paid respects to Ekeng ever since his passing and capped that with this display, and referees and all players wore Ekeng T-shirts during the pregame fesitivities as well.
