Former Birmingham City football team ecuador striker, Chucho Benitez died in a hospital in Qatar just hours after a game. The club provided no further details about the death. Chucho Benitez is third in his country’s all-time goalscoring standings, and his death came as a shock, just hours after his debut for new club. He was admitted to hospital with severe stomach pains shortly after making his debut for Qatari side El Jaish.
Chucho Benitez was on top form for Club America this season as well scoring 30 goals in 43 games. His sudden departure is a big shock for each member of the technical and administrative staff. He was a player that over the short period he was here was regarded for his high moral character.
I am shocked and saddened by the news of “Chucho’s” death. Although not the most prolific marksman he was much admired by the Blues’ faithful.
