Puerta, a 22-year-old Sevilla player, died on August 28 after suffering a heart attack during his team’s Liga match against Getafe in Sevilla. The message reads ‘See you soon Puerta, always in the hearts of Real Betis and especially Sevilla fans’.

    I would like to something to the young girls’s message about Puerta in Seville.
    On The Death of Antonio Puerta
    Antonio, you died on the pitch
    Under the beautiful skies of Spain.
    You died doing what great footballers love to do-
    Running on green short grass, with the lovely ball at their feet.
    The people of Seville will never forget you,
    Nor I who saw you collapse on that late August day,
    A day of loss for Spain.
    You died a hero’s death at Sanchez Pizjuan stadium,
    “Puerta, Sevilla esta contigo!”
