Farewell my friend - Adrian Dhanaraj, Singapore ex international soccer player

| |
Received a news that one of my secondary school classmate, Mr Adrian Dhanaraj had passed away last night.

Adrian was only 29 when he left us.

A recap of his soccer career

in 2002/2003, he 1st got into the Young Lions team and he was a regular player for the 1st team. He went on to represent a string of other clubs including SAFFC, Geylang United and Gombak United.

He had also earned 2 caps for Singapore.

Adrian was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma, a cancer of the lymph nodes. He had fought a good fight against the cancer, it is indeed Singapore's loss that a talented footballer had left us.

Back in school, he was always the soccer captain, deciding who to play and who should be benched. He's always cracking jokes on the side but when it comes to playing football, he is just amazing. He can dribble the ball pass 5 players and get the ball to the back of the net. It is no surprise that he eventually played football full-time.

Was also glad to see him commentating on the Lion City Cup and offered his views on EPL news as a football pundit organised by MioTv.

Rest in Peace my friend.

Everyone who knows you will know you had been a warrior all your life.

His wake will be held at the Singapore Casket, level 5 from 2pm onwards today, with the funeral scheduled for tomorrow.

In remembrance.
