The sad news broke yesterday that Claude Callegari, a regular member of the popular AFTV fan channel, has passed away. There has been no confirmation regarding the cause of death at this moment in time although, based on recent social media posts, many are implying that it could’ve been suicide.
We just wanted to take a minute to pay tribute to Claude and thank him for all the incredible memories he gave the fans during his time on the channel. He had the sort of burning passion for the club that every supporter should strive to have, and it was clear to see how much he missed being in attendance for games at the Emirates.
AFTV has already paid tribute to him in their own way and even Arsenal themselves released a brief statement.
Regardless of what actually happened to Claude, we just want to reiterate that it’s so important we all start talking about how we’re feeling. He was a big advocate for mental health in his life and it really has made an impact in the lives of so many.
Rest in peace, Claude – from Arsenal fans around the world.
