Overnight into Sunday, January 4, Anji-2 player Gasan Magomedov passed away. The footballer became a victim of unknown criminals who outshot his car.
It`s known, that on Saturday evening, January 3, Gasan played football with friends, then motored some of them home and headed off to his parental house, which is located several dozens of kilometers far from Makhachkala – Novokuli village of Kumtorkalinsky region.
About midnight he phoned his family members to inform them that he was on his way home. Sometime after, his family heard volley of automatic gunfire. Going out of the gate, they saw the attacked by fire car with bleeding Gasan inside. It was too late to save him from death, Gasan died on his way to hospital. As the police officers say, the criminals and the motives of crime haven`t been yet revealed. There is just one thing that can be surely stated – Gasan Magomedov could no way provoke that.
Being the Markarov school (the Makhachkala RYSS of RD Ministry of Education) trainee, Gasan spent two seasons with Anji. Last year he debuted in the RPL teams U21, this year he has performed for Anji-2 in the Second Division Yug zone league. Gasan was Anji-2 team regular footballer, mostly acting as a left back. He made 16 appearances in 18 matches of his team in the current season.
Gasan would have celebrated his 21-st birthday on January 17. Well-bred, kind-hearted boy, Magomedov was true to himself on the field – he fed the attacks aggressively, but never rude. It`s horrible to imagine what sorrow came to the Magomedovs.
Football club Anji conveys the sincerest condolences to all the dearest of Gasan. It`s big grief for all of us.
FC Anji General Director Sergey Korablev: “We condole with Gasan`s family. I hope the law-enforcement bodies will efficiently detect the murderers, who will receive just punishment. Despite of the efforts to destabilize the situation, we`ll keep on living and working for the only purpose – peaceful Dagestan! In memory of Gasan…”
