Car Accident Blue Cat?

""Benitez had recently joined the club from Club America for three seasons. The player participated for the first time with the team during yesterday's match against Qatar Sports Club in the Sheikh Jassem Cup without complaining of any health problems."

He was only 27. Sad for anyone to die so young.

I am seeing conflicting reports. Some say it was a car accident, whereas another says that he was "admitted to a Qatari hospital with appendicitis, which led to complications that led to respiratory arrest".

A bit odd.

And meanwhile in America... they seem to be insinuating it was due to playing in the summer heat...

Utter bollocks. Nothing to do with any car accident. Probably acute appendicitis but the western media will blame the heat in order to try and get the world cup rescheduled.

Utter bollocks!

Acute appendicitis is easily spotted and then easily treated! Secondly, the one thing the western media don't want is the world cup rescheduled..... thats kinda the whole argument!

Most reports say it was a heart attack.

According to the player's national football federation..."Benítez, who was with his new club in Qatar, had severe stomach pains, which was why he was rushed to a hospital, where after a few hours suffered he suffered a cardiorespiratory arrest, which ended his life." Let's wait and see.
