Former Ipswich Town keeper Marton Fulop dies after cancer battle
Former Ipswich Town keeper Marton Fulop has died at the age of 32 following a battle with cancer.
The Hungarian, who also played for Tottenham, Sunderland and Manchester City during his time in England, had a tumour removed from his arm in 2013 and was cleared to return to football.
He last played professional football for Greek side Asteras Tripoli in 2012/13 and won 24 caps for his country.
It was Roy Keane who brought Fulop to Portman Road from Sunderland in August 2010. The towering custodian went on to play 38 times during his one season at the club, which included a run to the semi-finals of the League Cup, before joining West Brom.
“The club is deeply saddened to learn of the passing of former Town ‘keeper, Marton Fulop, following his battle with cancer,” read a statement on the Ipswich Town website.
