stands in the moments before the duel between




that ended up costing him his life.

During the warm-up of the two teams, the fans from sectors 7 and 8 of the Central Stand, very close to one of the Mestalla corners, called the footballers' fans about the heart problem the fan was suffering from.

Members of the Red Cross and the Valencia medical services came to assist the fan, who underwent resuscitation for many minutes.

Both Valencia and

Gennaro Gattuso
