Ukraine starlet Pashayev dies in car accident


FC Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk defender and Ukraine Under-21 captain Maksym Pashayev has died following a car accident on Thursday.

Gifted
The 20-year-old sustained a fatal head injury after losing control of his car on an icy road and passed away on Friday without regaining consciousness. Pashayev was one of Ukraine's most gifted young players and had played over 100 international matches for his country at youth and Under-21 levels. He had established himself in the FC Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk side for the first time this season after spending 2007/08 out on loan at FC Kryvbas Kryvyi Rih and was on the verge of a first senior international call up.

'Irreplaceable'
"Max was a very honest and trustworthy person both in life and in sport," Ukraine Under-21 head coach Pavlo Yakovenko said. "He was a true professional and able to unite the whole team. It was not by accident the lads chose him as their captain. For me it is a huge and irreplaceable loss from a personal and a footballing point of view."

Very sad news,he was only 20........
