Besian Idrizaj

History Makers | 2010-11 | Besian Idrizaj

19th June

May 30 marked 10 years since Swansea City were promoted to the Premier League thanks to that memorable success against Reading at Wembley under Brendan Rodgers.

We hope you have enjoyed our week of features and interviews remembering that 2010-11 campaign, but we did not want to mark the anniversary without remembering a young man who sadly was not able to play a part in that wonderful season.

The loss of Besian Idrizaj in May 2010, at the age of just 22, deeply affected all connected with Swansea City and we felt it only right that we round off this project by allowing Besian's former team-mates and colleagues to pay tribute to him.

Now, as then, our thoughts remain with Besian's friends and family. He will forever be a Jack.
