Miki Roqué's passing continues to be hard to digest for the familia bética. The video below shows the informal gathering of 3,000 fans (and club officials, including Pepe Mel's No. 2, Roberto Rios, and Miki's former Betis B team-mate, Pozuelo) just outside the Benito Villamarín last night. You'll probably notice the significant Sevillista presence - in times of grief, as when Sevilla's 22-year-old defender Antonio Puerta died of a heart attack in 2007, the city's footballing rivalries are quickly forgotten.
The player's funeral was held in his hometown of Tremp today, attended by Miguel Guillén, Pepe Mel, Rafael Gordillo, doctor Tomas Calero, Sevilla president José María Del Nido, SFC sporting director Monchi, representatives from several other Primera clubs, Beñat, Cañas, Goitia, ex-Bético Arzu, Barcelona captain Carles Puyol and many hundreds more. You can see video footage here, although it's quite hard to watch. You can see more videos at videosdelbetis.com.
Finally, Yahoo! Sport's Andy Mitten has written a really nice article about Miki's Catalan upbringing, his time at Liverpool, and the heartfelt reaction to his death throughout Spanish football. Read it here.
