Tragedy: ex-WBA and colleague Maxi Pereira committed suicide in Uruguay

I fight in Uruguayan football. Williams Martinez, 38, a footballer for Villa Teresa, committed suicide on Saturday and fled the country in shock. The Uruguayan Federation has postponed all games that were scheduled for this Sunday.

Williams was at the end of his career and worked for a modest club, but early in his career he represented the Uruguayan main team (2003), played in the U17 World Cup (1999) and wore a West Bromwich Albion jersey (2005 / 06) in England.

Before heading to Velha Albion, Williams spent several seasons at Defensor Sporting and partnered in Maxi Pereira’s dressing room until the former Benfica and Porto defender moved to Portugal.

Valenciennes of France signed with Williams in 2008 and still wore the Stade Reims jersey in that country before returning to South America. He played for some of the largest clubs on the continent (River Plate, Cerro Porteño, Rampla Juniors) and moved to Villa Teresa in 2021.

Williams committed suicide on National Suicide Prevention Day, a particularly important day in a country where this type of death rate is worrying: 20.3 cases per 100,000 inhabitants.

The painful coincidences do not end there. Williams was a teammate and close friend of Santiago Morro Garcia, an advanced acquaintance who also committed suicide. In February.

As for the reasons, the Uruguayan press does not provide details. Just remember that Williams Martinez tested positive for covid-19 on June 23rd. Apparently, they say, he recovered.

BALL - "Real Madrid's defense is bad" (Champions League)

UEFA President Aleksander Čeferin spoke about the men’s and women’s Champions League finals, highlighting the presence of Real Madrid and Barcelona respectively, two clubs promoting the so-called Super League, a project designed with some emblems but no legs to walk on.

“I have no problems with Real Madrid, although at the moment I am not in contact with the board. But Real Madrid’s place in the Champions League final testifies to the purity of UEFA competition. Real Madrid and Barcelona are in the men’s and women’s finals. No one interfered,” he stressed in his statements to the Slovenes. 24ur.com Sports.

Čeferin also analyzed the performance of the teams: “In the semi-finals, I doubted that Real Madrid would be able to knock out Manchester City, especially after losing the first game. But it looks like they have nine lives, just like cats. This is an experienced team. In my opinion, the protection is bad. They have the wonderful Karim Benzema, who is often referred to as one of the most underrated players in football history. Luka Modric the older the better. But Liverpool have younger players and they have very important experience for the final. It’s going to be an incredibly interesting finale.”

We remind you that the final is scheduled for May 28, at 20:00, in Paris.
