Gregory Mertens, Lokeren and former Belgium under 21 defender, has died after suffering a heart attack on the pitch during a game against Genk on Monday. He was only 24.

Reminiscent of the heart attack of Fabrice Muamba of Bolton during a game against Spurs a few years ago, only, sadly, this time without a happy recovery.

Just like Antonio Puerta of Sevilla, back in 2007. RIP Gregory.

It was so dreadfully sad to read about that.

Poor fellow, and his poor family and team mates.
