    Besian Idrizaj is dead, the 22-year-old former midfielder Football Bundesliga LASK Linz died in the night on Saturday in the apartment of his parents in Linz on a heart attack. His brother Qerim who wears the dress of Landesligist Union Baumgartenberg noticed first the tragedy and tried desperately to save the lives of Besian.

    The Reanimierungsversuche came too late. Even in the exceptional talent of his active career was repeatedly collapsed.

    One of the greatest talents in Austrian football is dead Besian Idrizaj, who at Swansea City, a club from the second highest English league, was under contract, died in the night on Saturday unexpectedly at the home of his parents. During his visit home cheered the 22-year-old still on a week ago, his brother Qerim, who scored in the game against the national league east Naarn two hits for Baumgartenberg.

    Speaking to the OÖN on Saturday afternoon had a shocked Qerim Idrizaj search for the words. "More Besian is dead, I can say at the moment."

    In his active career Besian Idrizaj had already collapsed twice without external influence. In the Bundesliga match against Sturm Graz on 20 February 2008 he lay unconscious on the pitch for several minutes and was allowed to enter until a month later in the rehabilitation training. In November 2008, the offensive player broke again together in one trial with LASK and was then admitted to the hospital.

    In the recent past, seemed to be the state of Idrizaj to have stabilized. After a guest performance at the German Oberliga side FC Eilenburg of Linz in August 2009 signed an agreement with Swansea City, where he played only three games.

    As a 16-year-old is Idriziajs career was on the rise. After his debut in the struggle of the team LASK he was discovered at the U17 European Championships 2004 in France by scouts of Liverpool FC in the summer of 2005 by the "Reds" committed.

    He played a few games, at the start of this season he played for us against S****horpe when we had three players sent off, about 10 mins from the end he was not feeling well and we had used all our subs, but the ref refused to let him leave the field as it would have meant the game would have been abandoned due to us having only 6 players left on the field.

    Shows how lucky that ref was after hearing about the news today.
