The death of Mukhaled Al-Raqadi has again set off numerous alarms as more and more footballers face heart problems.
Names and cases like Sergio Agüer, Piotr Zielinski, or Marin Čačić have shocked football fans who are wondering how heart attacks happen to footballers who are under constant control. Many have posted on social media with the message: "When will this end?".
A lot of people believe that such things have become more and more frequent lately and that a solution must be found and the reason why tragic outcomes occur. At the time of the pandemic, we faced many problems, and some believe that the consequences of COVID are the reason for such outcomes, while some believe that the vaccine is the cause.
The fact is that for whatever reason, young lives are disappearing, and unfortunately, it seems that this will not be the last case and that many similar things await us.
