AMSTERDAM, Netherlands (AP) - FC Utrecht defender David di Tommaso died in his sleep at age 26, the club said Tuesday. The cause of death wasn't immediately known.
The French-born di Tommaso was voted the team's player of the year last season by fans.
He began his professional career at AS Monaco before moving to Sedan for four seasons, and joined Utrecht last season.
Dutch media reported Di Tommaso may have had a heart problem, but the club could not immediately confirm that.
Too early. Too young. RIP.
