Russian Professional Footballer Dies at 29


Russian footballer Alexander Kozlov has died at the age of 29 following a blood clot.

Kozlov reportedly passed away after suffering a blood clot during a training session with the amateur team he had been playing for, as reported by Baza.

The striker has been described as a top talent of his generation, competing for the youth national team and playing his first Champions League game at the age of 17.

Kozlov also played for Moscow’s Spartak professional football club.

From EuroWeekly News:

Kozlov was preparing for the season with Zorky (Krasnogorsk), a club from the Moscow region that competes in the second league.

He also played for Tyumen, Khimki, Tosno, Fakel, Ararat from Yerevan, Okzhetpes from Kazakhstan and Aluston-JBK from Crimea.

The news of the death of Russian footballer Aleksandr Kozlov follows mass tributes that have been paid to Scottish midfielder Adam Strachan after he was found dead aged 35 on Saturday, July 9.

His club was quick to post on Twitter saying: “Everyone at Partick Thistle Football Club is greatly saddened to learn of the passing of our former player, Adam Strachan, at the age of 35.”

Athletes continue dying in the prime of their careers at an unprecedented rate, and mainstream media remains silent.
