Ediz Bahtiyaroglu 1986-2012
Former Ankaragucu player and captain Ediz Bahtiyaroglu has passed away after suffering a heart attack. The 26 year old is the latest in a growing number of young footballers to pass away due to heart problems. In recent months Fabrice Muamba who stopped breathing on the pitch has retired on doctors orders after making a remarkable recovery, while Lovorno Piermario Morosini wasn't as lucky as he died on the park during a league game after suffering a cardiac arrest.
Ediz born in Novi Pazar Bosnia, moved to Turkey at the age of 10, Ankaragucu signed him from Ankaraspor and the commanding centre half left the club last season. He will be remembered as a true professional by the Ankaragucu fans and we at Ankaragucu Iskocya would like to send our condolences to his current club Eskisehirspor and his family.
Rest in peace Ediz
