Boban was pronounced dead on the the field, although his cause of death is yet to be announced.
The team paid tribute to Boban on Facebook, saying all players and staff “express deep condolences to the family for this tragic loss.” So crazy, if you watch, it didn’t even look like a hard hit to the chest.
