Christian  “Chucho” Benitez died this morning. According to his father in law. “Chucho” had developed appendicitis, which turned into peritonitis.  Benitez had played soccer for several teams and the striker was currently with El Jaish of the Qatar Stars League. In a statement from El Jaish, who Benitez signed with on July 6th, the club stated “Benitez had recently joined the club from Club America for three seasons. The player participated for the first time with the team during yesterday’s match against Qatar Sports Club in the Sheikh Jassem Cup without complaining of any health problems. His sudden departure is a big shock for each member of the technical and administrative staff. He was a player that over the short period he was here was regarded for his high moral character.”
