#23 François Sterchele - Never Forgotten

Quote:
Belgische international Sterchele verongelukt


BRUSSEL - De Belgische profvoetballer François Sterchele is in de nacht van woensdag op donderdag omgekomen door een auto-ongeluk. De 26-jarige international en speler van Club Brugge was op slag dood, meldde de zender VRT donderdag.

Sterchele verloor niet ver van Beveren, ten westen van Antwerpen, de controle over het stuur. Hij botste tegen een boom en belandde in een maïsveld.

De aanvaller was vorig jaar topschutter in de Belgische competitie. Hij speelde eerder bij Charleroi en Germinal Beerschot en kwam vier keer uit voor de Rode Duivels. Een geplande overgang van Sterchele naar Heerenveen ketste vorig jaar op het laatste moment af.

Feyenoord forum - the place to talk about this phenomenon

Ronald Koeman "Oranje kan Immers goed gebruiken"

Fred Rutten "Feyenoord heeft Immers nodig"

Van Marwijk over Lex Immers: 'Stille kracht van Feyenoord'

John de Wolf “Dat is nou precies de aanjager, het ’etterbakkie’ in het veld dat Feyenoord in dit soort wedstrijden nodig heeft"

I couldn't believe what I heard on the radio this morning. I just drove on with my mouth open, hoping I had misunderstood things. This is terrible news

He was the man you loved to 'hate'. When I think about the way we attacked him verbally quite hard last saturday makes me feel weird now, even though I know he didn't bother. Even though I know provoking and fastness was just his way of life ... Things like these just put the fact football is just a stupid game in the spotlight.

It's only a game, R.I.P. François !

I was shocked when I read it today on the TT. R.I.P. Francois. I'll never forget the joy you brought us in the few games I went to watch you on the Kiel

Terrible, just terrible. As most KVO fans, I always considered Club Brugge as a rival, but that is totally unimportant. Football is a game, and this sort of news puts the whole game in a totally different perspective. Regardless of the team he represented, a young man with a whole life in front of him has died and the only word that suits here is "tragedy".

RIP Francois and my sincerest condolences to his family and friends and to all Club Brugge fans.

I hope the fans of other teams (including the strongest rivals of FCB) will adopt the minute of applause and give him a suitable goodbye. Hopefully the fans of the rivals of FCB will all realise that this is a bit more serious than some football rivalry and hopefully the whole D1 will respect a minute of silence or applaus.

It is weird, this guy was younger than me. To have to die at age 26 with so many great things still ahead of him... Life is unfair. You don't wish this to nobody.

Soccer is put back in the right perspective at the mind ( let's keep it that way ! )... The loss of a human life, famous or not, has a much bigger impact ...

I do hope that the rival supporters of Club Brugge can obey the 1 minute silence but I doubt it :thmbdown: ( look Constant VD Stock )

My condolences to family, friends, collegues, ... and everyone who knew/admired him.

Seems that his death happened as he lived...fast
Luckily, no-one else was in the car .

Don't you have a great goal from him, Tom ? Something to remember his "sometimes" great performances ?
