Miguel Calero is brain dead. The former Colombia international goalkeeper had received treatment for several days in a Mexico City hospital.
Calero, 41, spent most of his playing career with Pachuca. Thrombosis in his arm caused a blood clot to reach his brain.
"Mr. Calero is brain dead," Dr. Edgar Natal, neurosurgeon, and Dr. José Antonio Torres, who is chief of medical services for Pachuca, said. "Unfortunately, it is only a matter of time befor Miguel Calero passes away."
Currently, Calero is on life support.
