R.I.P Besian Idrizaj

A Sad Day For Football

The agent of Swansea striker Besian Idrizaj has unfortunately told the media of the players death due to a heart attack on May 15th in his family home in Linz, Austria. Although not a regular in the Swansea side, it is so unfortunate to see a player (or indeed anyone) die at such a young age, and the death of the 22 year old gives a sad end to a great season in the Championship. In England Idrizaj represented Liverpool, Luton, Crystal Palace, Blackburn and of course Swansea City, which has been rocked by this sudden death. Although only making three appearances for the Swans in his first season, manager Paulo Sosa was a fan of the youngster and was thought to be impressed with the attacking option he could bring to a team.

An actual diagnosis of the death will become clearer with time, but our thoughts go out to the family and everyone involved with Besian tonight. Hopefully there will be a minutes silence before the upcoming Championship play-off final as a mark of respect to the player. This is a very sad day not only for the Championship, but football in general.
