Former Barcelona player Maxi Rolon passes away aged 27

Maxi Rolon, a former Barcelona B prospect, was killed in a car accident yesterday.

Rolon and his brother Ariel were in the vehicle when it lost control and slammed into a tree, killing them both. He is only 27 years old.

At Mitre in Argentina, Rolon was last on the books. He formerly played for Al Diwaniya, Fuerza Amarilla, Coquimbo Unido, Pubilla Casas, Lugo, Arsenal F.C. (Argentina), and Santos.

The Argentine winger spent six years with Barcelona, rising through the ranks in Catalonia before spending two years on the B squad. Along with Munir El Haddadi and Adama Traore, he was a member of the Juvenil A side (under 19s) that won the UEFA Youth League in 2014.

Sport broke the news, noting that he was a member of Argentina's Under 20s team during his early career, winning seven caps and scoring once.

May the two brothers rest in peace.
