Argentine goalkeeper commits suicide

BUENOS AIRES: Sergio Schulmeister, the goalkeeper of Argentine First Division club Huracan, committed suicide on Tuesday, team coach Carlos Babington said. 

Schulmeister missed training and when his teammates went to his apartment to look for him, police told them the 25-year-old had killed himself. 

“We found out after training. I don't know what was going through his mind,” Babington told reporters. 

“He missed training and two of his teammates went to see him, they found the police at his door and were told he had committed suicide.” 

Schulmeister began his career in the youth divisions of Boca Juniors, Argentina's most popular club. He also played for lower division sides Atletico Rafaela, Defensores and San Miguel before establishing himself at Huracan. 

Team sources said he had previously attempted to commit suicide in September 2001. – Reuters
