Club Brugge player FranÃƒÂ§ois Sterchele has died at the age of 26 in a car crash earlier today.
Sterchele reportedly crashed into a tree at around 3am local time, in the town of Vrasene after returning from spending an evening in Antwerpen.
The forward, who was Belgium’s top scorer in the 2006-07 Jupiler League season and played four matches for the national team, was born in LiÃƒÂ©ge on March 14th 1982.
After having represented Kelmis, Oud-Heverlee Leuven, Sporting Charleroi and Germinal Beerschot, the talented striker tried his luck at Club Brugge.
In March of 2007, Sterchele received his first national team invitation from coach RenÃƒÂ© Vandereycken.
A condoleance register has been opened at Club Brugge’s official site and will be available physically at Terrain 2 of Jan Breydel Stadium on Friday and Saturday from 10:30 to 20:00 local time.
