Ex-Liverpool winger Mark Gonzalez suffers a heart attack aged 36


Former Liverpool winger Mark Gonzalez is recovering after a heart attack at the age of 36. 

The Chilean winger, who also played for Real Sociedad, Real Betis and CSKA Moscow in Europe, is in hospital after falling ill and is responding to treatment. 

Gonzalez's wife, Chilean TV personality Maura Rivera, announced the news on Instagram and admitted the scare it has given her over the last few days.  

Rivera wrote: 'The love of my life, my soul mate, what a shock you have given me. The past few nights have been terrible. Days filled with uncertainty, it's been really frightening.

'I am writing this as you are still here with us and a little better - and because in many ways, the fact that you are still here with us, makes us cherish every moment we have together, family and above all, life itself.

'It's amazing how everything can change from one moment to the next. Life can surprise us and test us, still in fear, but with faith, strength and hope, we can come out of all of the bad moments. I want you to be with me forever, Mark.'
