Turkish club Aytemiz Alanyaspor have retired the number 90 shirt in honour of Czech Republic striker Josef Sural, who died in a bus crash on Sunday.

Sural, 28, was killed as he and his team-mates returned from a match against Kayserispor.

"The number 90 jersey has been retired on the decision of our board of directors," said the club on Twitter.

Sural had scored one goal in nine league games for Alanyaspor since signing in January.
