The family of Newcastle’s former goalkeeper Pavel Srnicek have appealed to Newcastle fans for help today during our home game against Everton.
They put out the request via Pavel’s Twitter account.
The 47 year-old former Newcastle United goalkeeper suffered a serious cardiac arrest last Sunday while he was out running – and he is still in an induced coma in the Czech Republic with little change in his condition which remains critical.
Pavel Srnicek – remains in a coma
His family have appealed to Geordie fans to sing ‘Pavel is a Geordie’ at half-time during today’s game – and then a recording of that will be played directly to Pavek Srnicek at his bedside.
This is the tweet sent out via Pavel’s Twitter account and some responses including one from Alan Shearer:
Pavs family have requested fans to sing Pavel Is A Geordie at half time today so that it can be recorded and played to him at bedside #nufc
