Mexican International Antonio De Nigris Dies Of Heart Attack At 31

The Larissa attacker passed away suddenly at the weekend...

Nov 16, 2009

31-year-old former Mexican international Antonio de Nigris passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, November 16.

The news was confirmed by Monterrey’s president Jorge Urdiales to Milenio Television saying, “We’d just like to inform that he died. At this moment we’re thinking about how to help Aldo and his family.”

His younger brother Aldo de Nigris is a player for Monterrey.

De Nigris played with the Mexican national team 16 times, scoring 4 goals in the process. He started out with Monterrey before a quick stint in America.

In recent years, the player plied his trade in Turkey at Ankarasapor and Ankaragucu before moving on the Larissa in Greece.

De Nigris is survived by his wife and his five-years-old daughter.

Shaken Aldo De Nigris Speaks Of Brother’s Death

Goal.com

Antonio De Nigris' death was attributed to heart problems, according to reports.

While the death came as a shock to the Mexican footballing community, his heart condition - congestive heart failure, according to reports - was not an unknown to his family, brother Aldo De Nigris said. However, they did not think it was fatal.

"We were aware of the condition but thought it was a minor problem," De Nigris said. "We thought it was normal."

Aldo spoke of his brother's life and death during a press conference, where he spoke with a trembling voice, covered his face at times and took long pauses between words at others.

"I know he's watching me and he's probably upset because he's seeing me like this," Aldo said. "He never liked to see me like this, but he knows I'm going to fight for the dream we both had, which was to go to the World Cup."

Although Aldo was visibly shaken with having to deal with a tramautic loss, he said he would not skip Monterrey's playoff match against America at Estadio Tecnologico on the weekend.

"I want to play. If I don't play, Toño is going to appear and he's going to beat me up," Aldo said. "What he always wanted was for me to play. He was always a fighter, we all know that. Hopefully I'll get some of that so I can achieve a quarter of the things he did…. I followed in his footsteps, tried to follow. Maybe someday I'll be able to do what he did.

Antonio came up with Monterrey before leaving Mexico for Spanish side Villarreal. He also played for clubs in Turkey, Colombia and Brazil, as well as three other Mexican teams, before landing with Greek side Larissa. He died Sunday night in his home in the Greek city.

While his career path is impressive, the elder De Nigris spoke highly of his younger brother, Aldo said.

"He would always tell me that I was going to be better than him," he said. "I told him that it was impossible because of his charisma and character. I never knew anyone who spoke bad of him. And I've never known anybody who has felt more love for the Rayados jersey than he did."

RIP - He was an awesome person, very good player. He was loved by many in Turkiye no matter what team they support. There are many messages of sympathy for him and his family everyone will miss him. The one game where he scored vs Fenerbahce he put that Lucha Libre mask on that was classic, never seen that before. Good bye Antonio.
