But the 38-year-old died of a heart attack on Friday while he was raising money so that his boy, Muhammad Royyan, now four, could undergo surgery.
The former Woodlands Wellington player, who played in the S-League (now renamed Singapore Premier League) in the early 2000s, had set a target of raising at least $120,000 at fundraising site Give.asia. As of now, public donations have totalled close to $58,000.
