Queiroz upset by "tragic" death of Benfica star - Tue Jan 27, 2:01 PM ET

MADRID (AFP) - Real Madrid's Portuguese coach Carlos Queiroz said he was deeply saddened by the death at the weekend during a top-flight match of Benfica's Hungarian star Miklos Feher.

"It was a very great tragedy, a bad day for football, Portuguese football and for Benfica supporters," said Queiroz.

"The last thing you expect when you're enjoying a football match is to see a death during it.

"It is a sad moment and I want to pass on my condolences to the friends and family of the player," said former Portugal and Sporting Lisbon coach Queiroz, who was assistant coach at Manchester United last season before taking the reins last summer at Real.

Hungarian international striker Feher, just 24, suffered a suspected heart attack during the Portuguese giants' league game Sunday against Vitoria Guimaraes.
