Former Tottenham defender Goran Bunjevcevic has died at the age of 45.
On Thursday his former club Red Star Belgrade announced the news and confirmed that the former player has been in a serious condition since last Wednesday.
In April Bunjevcevic suffered a stroke back and underwent emergency surgery.
Serbia dedicated their win over Costa Rica at the World Cup to Bunjevcevic, after the squad visited him in hospital before this summer's tournament in Russia.
Former Manchester City defender Aleksandr Kolarov also dedicated his winning goal against Costa Rica to Bunjevcevic.
"We want him to know that we are all supporting him. We want to relay this message to him and his family that we are 100 per cent behind him.”
