Hungarian keeper Fulop dies of cancer at 32


BUDAPEST: Tributes poured in on Thursday for former Hungary goalkeeper Marton Fulop, who played for a string of English Premier League clubs, after he died from cancer aged just 32.In February 2013, Fulop reported sharp pain in his arm after saving a shot during a training session. A cancer diagnosis followed soon after. Spotted at MTK’s youth academy before having played a top flight game in Hungary, Fulop was signed by Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur in 2004 as backup to England international Paul Robinson. A series of loan moves brought the Hungarian to Chesterfield, Coventry City and Sunderland, who signed Fulop in 2007 before loaning him out again to Leicester City, Manchester City and West Bromwich Albion.
