PSV spokesman announces his own death from cancer: “I can no longer be helped” | Sports

What a sad and tragic message from fan favorite Thijs Slegers (46) …

The PSV Eindhoven spokesman announced his impending death on Twitter. Slegers, who has been battling leukemia for years, had survived what was actually a successful stem cell transplant. But months ago, the cells were shed.

Is THIS reason behind everything? Explosive assumption about the new Zoff in Bavaria!

The 46-year-old begins his Twitter post with: “Unfortunately, we received some bad news yesterday. The rejection disease that has been plaguing me for months is unstoppable.”

Then comes the sad conclusion: “After a previously successful stem cell transplant, the after-effects are eventually fatal. The doctors can no longer do anything for me.”

At Sunday’s game between PSV Eindhoven and Feyenoord Rotterdam, the PSV players wore special shirts that said “Stärke, Thijs!” In addition, the more than 47,000 fans in attendance clapped for a minute in honor of the longtime spokesman.

PSV coach Ruud van Nistelrooij and captain Luuk de Jong spoke of the heartwarming support for Slegers: “It was a wonderful tribute from the fans in the stadium. We fought for Thijs. There are other things in life than football and it’s terrible what’s happening to him.”

Did you notice her too? The worst new statement against Bayern!

Slegers himself also shows that he has not lost his sense of humor despite the sad diagnosis: “There is nothing left but to accept fate and come to terms with it,” he writes. He doesn’t know how much longer he has to live. That’s why “tips for good series are welcome. I have to pass the time anyway.”

Then, in his sad announcement, he finally calls on everyone to register to donate stem cells: “I can no longer be helped, but others can. If you really want to make me happy, sign up.”
