MEXICO CITY (AP) - Former Colombia goalkeeper Miguel Calero, who played for more than a decade with Mexican club Pachuca, has died of complications following a stroke. He was 41.
Pachuca said in a statement that Calero died Tuesday in a Mexico City hospital.
Calero suffered a stroke and was hospitalized a week ago in Mexico, where he has lived since playing with Pachuca. Calero retired as Pachuca player in 2011. He helped the club to four league titles and the regional Copa Sudamericana.
Calero underwent surgery but was pronounced "brain dead" on Monday. Doctors said his condition was irreversible.
