Shock in the world of football due to the death this Saturday of Gonzalo Romero, a 18-year-old goalkeeper for Sporting Chiclana (Cádiz), as reported by the club through its social networks. The athlete was currently playing in Juvenil A.

"Today we are in mourning. We have to mourn the unexpected and sudden death of Gonzalo Romero, Juvenil A goalkeeper. We are heartbroken and full of pain," announced the Cadiz entity.

Sporting Chiclana wanted to send a message of support to Romero's relatives: "We join the pain of his family and friends. Always in our hearts, Gonzalo."

The desolation over the news has also reached the ranks of Huétor Tájar (Granada), the club in the town where he was born. "Without words or strength to write the harshest lines in our history," they point out through their X account (formerly Twitter).

"Our Great goalkeeper and best person, Gonzalo Romero, died yesterday at the age of 18. He leaves us with a wound that we can hardly close," they continue from the Nasrid entity.

"We are heartbroken and full of pain. He was a great player and teammate," sources from this soccer school explain to Ideal, which suspended all its matches for the weekend.

According to sources close to the investigation, the autopsy pointed to pulmonary edema as the cause of death.
