RIP Janu; prayers for William Yau

UPDATE 6pm: Police almost certain the body of a young boy found in a river in Klang is that of William Yau.

--------

He once donned Sabah's jersey.

He played alongside countrymen Jaruslav Netolicka and Michael Vana for the Borneo side.

He drew his final breath yesterday.

He is Czechoslovakian footballer-turned-coach Miroslav Janu (pic).

Harimau Muda A coach Ong Kim Swee had quickly messaged me right after landing in Brisbane asking if I had any updates on Janu's condition after the latter suffered a heart attack earlier in the day.

Sadly, I had no good news to offer Kim Swee who also played for Sabah in the 90s.

Janu, the coach of Surabaya-based football club Persebaya, died at the age of 53 at Jemursari Islamic Hospital in Surabaya, East Java, at around 12 pm on Thursday, due to a heart attack, reported The Jakarta Post.

Some will remember Janu as Sabah's all time best 11.

A sad day for football.

HD says: Also sad that a body, of a fair skinned believed to be a seven-year-old boy, was fished out of a river in Klang as the parents of missing six-year-old William Yau Zhen Zhong were called to identify the body at the Tengku Ampuan Rahimah Hospital.  Even if the body is not William, it is still sad that a young lad has died. RIP.
