Hinkel: All of Sevilla shocked by Puerta passing

Sevilla fullback Andy Hinkel admits everyone at the club is shocked after the death of teammate Antonio Puerta yesterday.

"During the game the situation did not seem so dramatic. Puerta even was able to walk away on his feet to the dressing room. If we had known the seriousness of the situation, we would not have continued playing," said Hinkel.

"We are shocked, we cannot believe it. We had heard that he was connected to a respirator and was getting better, it is horribly sad, his fiance is waiting with his baby."
