Robert Enke

Robert Enke was a goalkeeper with all the world ahead of him. He seemed sure to be selected as the Germany goalkeeper for the World Cup next summer, during which he would have passed into the general conciousness of the football world as Khan and Lehmann did before. Last night Robert Enke drove his car to a level crossing, leaving his car unlocked and a note inside, before walking in front of a train that killed him instantly. This particular crossing was just yards away from the grave of his two-year old daughter Lara, who died of a heart condition in 2006. He leaves behind a wife and eight month old adopted daughter Leila, who he feared would be taken from them if news of his depression became common knowledge.

Look after your friends. Because sometimes they don’t have the strength to look after themselves…
