Espanyol Captain Daniel Jarque Dies Of Heart Failure

Recommended Posts

Newly-appointed Espanyol captain Dani Jarque was found dead in his Coviciana hotel room tonight.

The centre-back is said to have suffered from heart failure some time after returning from training during Espanyol's pre-season tour of Italy.

The tragic news came only one month after the player - who had spent his entire professional career at the club - was appointed captain of the Parakeets.

Jarque's death comes two years after the death of Sevilla's Antonio Puerta, who collapsed on the field during his team's Spanish league match against Getafe.

The news was officially confirmed on the Liga side's official website.

It seems quite a lot of footballers are droping dead while on the pitch or in training. Before you had to be a drug addict, smoker and drinker for that to happen.

I remember last season a player died while playing a match.
