Last tribute to ex-Newcastle goalkeeper Pavel Srnicek, who died aged 47

Former Newcastle United goalkeeper Pavel Srnicek has died following a cardiac arrest last week, and the football world has paid its respects.

His agent, Steve Wraith, said in a statement: “It is with deep sadness that I have to announce the passing of former Newcastle United player Pavel Srnicek.

“Pavel suffered a cardiac arrest before the Christmas period in his home country and had been in an induced coma in hospital with his close family around his bedside.

“Despite the best medical attention the final brain scans on Monday showed irreversible damage and the decision had to be taken to switch off the life support machine.”

Srnicek represented Newcastle, Sheffield Wednesday, Portsmouth and West Ham during his days playing in England and is remembered fondly by each club, along with fans and the media.
