BUENOS AIRES, April 4 (Reuters)(DS) - Mirko Saric, a midfielder
with San Lorenzo of the Argentine first division, was found dead
in his mother's home Tuesday in what police said appeared to be
a suicide.
The 21-year-old was found hanging from a bedsheet in the
west Buenos Aires apartment by his mother, who came to his room
to call him to breakfast, police spokesman Ricardo Rodriguez
told Telam news agency.
Saric joined San Lorenzo in February, 1998 when he was 19
and scored four goals in 41 matches.
He had been deeply depressed since badly injuring the
ligaments in his left knee in a car crash 15 days ago.
Doctors said it would be at least four months before they
knew whether he would be able to play again.
He is the second player to apparantly commit suicide in the
last few days. On Friday a Cypriot first division player was
also found hanged in his bedroom after a bout of depression.
