Yeah just saw it there

Popped up as breaking news at the PL on Sky just there

Although he was before my time he left a great legacy. I actually played against him at an exhibition in 2013 nice guy.

Rip, great work by the commentators acting so professional after this shocking news.

He didn't lead the healthiest of lifestyles but for him to pass away this young is shocking.

RIP Eric.
