Former Liverpool, Sunderland and QPR Djibril Cisse, 37, was also among the six stars taken to hospital.

The accident happened last night as the Turkish side were travelling in a private minibus after a 1-1 draw with Kayserispor in which Caulker scored.

Players from Alanyaspor were travelling from Alanya back to the city where they crashed in Antalya-Alanya land road, five kilometers before the centre in Dinek.

It is reported the minibus overturned leaving seven footballers injured and Sural in a critical condition.

The striker had fractures in his head and in some parts of his body, and was taken to intensive care.

Tragically he was pronounced dead after doctors treated his injuries.


Club chairman Hasan Cavusoglu claimed the driver had fallen asleep behind the wheel.

He said: “According to information I received from our police chief, despite there being two drivers on the vehicle, they were both asleep.

“The crash happened as a result of them both being asleep.”
