PICTURE: Carles Puyol's tribute to tragic Liverpool youngster

Carles Puyol

Former Liverpool academy starlet Miki Roque passed away last June.

It is approaching a year since the sad passing of Miki Roque, a former Liverpool academy starlet who even made an appearance in a Champions League game.

Roque had loan spells with Oldham and Bilbao, before being released in 2009 and signing with Betis, the club he was with when he was diagnosed with pelvic cancer.

Roque was only 23 when he lost his battle with cancer, but it is a case of gone but not forgotten.

Barcelona veteran Carles Puyol was a friend of his, and has decided to pay tribute to Roque, by inscribing his name and initial on his boots.

Class.
