Negeri Sembilan Super League physiotherapist See Kim Leong, fondly known among officials and players as Uncle C, died at the age of 63 at Tuanku Jaafar Hospital here.
Negeri Sembilan Football Association media relations officer Abdul Malek Hassan said See breathed his last at 2am after complaining of body aches earlier in the day.
He was sent to a specialist hospital here before being transferred to the Tuanku Jaafar Hospital where he breathed his last, he told Bernama.
Among those who visited See at the hospital was the association's honorary secretary and team manager Datuk Abd Halim Abd Latif,
See is survived by a wife Audrey Mcleod, 61, four children and seven grandchildren. One of his daughters, Sharon Elaine See, 33, said his father died due to internal bleeding.
His remains will be brought to his home in Taman Sentosa, Klang, tomorrow before being cremated.
Abdul Malek said the late See was a jovial person and had contributed a lot to the team.
"His death is a loss to the team. He was a very dedicated and experienced physiotherapist and had been helping the players recovered from their injuries," he said.
