Mirko Saric


Mirko is a short name of Miroslav, which means “famous for having secured his peace “. He was twenty-one years old and had a hyper-sensible personality. From a family of Croatian origin, footballer since childhood, he was one of Argentinean team San Lorenzo de Almagro’s icons. His booking was priced in ten million dollars. An injury on his knee had left him off the pitch for a year. He refused to attend a psychological treatment. A love deception and a car accident threw him into a deep depression that triggered tragedy when he decided to hang himself with the sheets of his bed, in his mother’s house. His death had a great impact inside the club and in the mass media. Many fans baptized their sons with the player’s name after what happened. They remember him with the phrase “Mirko in our hearts for ever”. He was 21 years old.
