Former Newcastle United, Sheffield Wednesday and West Ham goalkeeper Pavel Srnicek has died at the age of 47. Srnicek suffered a cardiac arrest in Czech Republic while running on Dec. 20th and has been in coma since then. His life support was pulled off yesterday after his family gave the go-ahead.
Srnicek played for Newcastle between 1991 and 1998, helping them win promotion to the top flight during the 1992-93 season. He returned to the club on a season-long deal in September 2006 as cover for the injured Shay Given. May his soul rest in peace. Amen.
