A talented midfielder, Whittingham started his career with Aston Villa and later played 10 years in Cardiff.
During his stint at the club they reached a FA Cup final and a League Cup final, and won promotion to the EPL.
He also played for England’s under-21 team.
Cardiff described Whittingham as a “family man” who could “illuminate a room” with his humor and personality.
“So as a professional footballer – like Bluebird – he excelled with talent, ease, grace and humility. Nobody did better.
“Peter’s loss will be painfully felt by our city, supporters and everyone who has ever had the pleasure of meeting him. We love you Pete and your memory will remain eternally with us.”
The news adds to the hard 14 months at the club, after the death of the Italian footballer Emiliano Sala, who was on board a plane that crashed into the English Channel off the coast of Guernsey on a flight that took him from France to Wales to connect with Cardiff.
Sala was signed by Cardiff from the French club Nantes for £ 15m ($ 29.64m). His death resulted in a dispute between the two clubs for the payment of his transfer fee.
Current and former players have also paid tribute to Whittingham on social media.
Leicester City and England player James Maddison said he had “the greatest respect for his footballing prowess and that left foot wand that scored so many free kicks that I loved seeing.”
Peter Whittingham wasa Cardiff City legendThe unforgettable hit with his left foot was unforgettable, with which in a decade and 459 games with the club he achieved 98 goals and, among other milestones, the promotion to the Premier League. This Thursday he died at the age of 35 due to head injuries resulting from a death he suffered last week in a pub in Barry (Wales).
The English footballer, born in Nuneaton, also wore the Aston Villa jersey (until 2007) and theBlackburn Rovers, the last one I played in, until 2018.
“With immense pain we report that Peter Whittingham has passed away at the age of 35. We are heartbroken. The city, fans, and everyone who ever had the pleasure of meeting him will painfully feel Peter’s loss. We love you, Pete, and your memory remain with us forever, “Cardiff City said in a statement.
Aston Villa legend Gabby Agbonlahor said that Jack Grealish is too good for Manchester United and urged the Aston Villa star to turn down any potential moves.
Grealish has been Villa’s talisman since their return to the Premier League, routinely drawing attention with his extraordinary performances for the wicked in need.
Having been heavily connected with a move to Tottenham and Manchester United in the past, rumors have surfaced once again that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team will return with an offer for the director in the summer.
Although it looks perfect for United’s new policy of exciting young domestic talent, however, the former Villa Agbonlahor striker thinks a move to United could be detrimental to Grealish’s career.
“I’m not just saying this because I played with him, but I honestly think it’s the best offensive midfield option that England has at the moment.” Agbonlahor stated in an interview with The Sun.
“When people say Grealish to Manchester United, they could do much better than that. They can join any team in the world, including Barcelona or Juventus.”
Despite playing for Villa threatened by relegation, Grealish has ranked among the most creative players in the league this season, recording six assists in his 25 starts and adding seven more goals.
While United would undoubtedly present a significant increase in the standard compared to its current position, however Agbonlahor believes that the lack of football in the Champions League could constitute a serious obstacle to its development.
“Where he is at Manchester United he could now go to better teams around the world, so he doesn’t need to limit himself to United only and focus on the teams that are playing in the Champions League.
“The good thing about Jack is that he can run with and without the ball, play in different positions and score goals. He is the type of player that football fans will go to a game to watch him specifically, even if I’m not a fan of Villa “.
The assertion that Grealish could enter any team in the world will certainly arouse much debate among fans of Villa and the English national team.
Despite not yet receiving a single cap for his senior national team, Grealish is the most productive English midfielder in the Premier League this season – triumphing over characters like James Maddison, Dele Alli, Jordan Henderson and Mason Mount.
It’s not just Dortmund-Paris-SG in life: a real entry into the competition for European behemoths – Paris-SG but also Barcelona, Real Madrid, English clubs – in the queen competition, the round of 16 the Champions League mark the gateway to matches of a stratospheric level, rich in adventures and reversals of situations. Overview of the other games of the week.
Atlético Madrid – Liverpool FC (Tuesday, 9 p.m.)
It would be nice if Atlético Madrid won because … Atlético Madrid is stuck in the simplest cliché: a team complicated to face and anti-good game in its most elaborate version. Namely, love-killing and pragmatism flirting with the accordion bus technique – defense first. The sworn enemy of football and gourmet mirettes. Diego Simeone, Madrid’s coach, single-handedly recounts the slide into this dark box. Five or six years ago, the Argentinian, who arrived on the Madrid bench in 2011, was still the genius of Europe. The one who turned lambs into wolves. Who made his players run 90 minutes, which gave the impression of being able to investigate 180 without problem and if necessary, 270 – with a smile to their ears. There, he is portrayed as good without more and disbelieving: if we trust the ambient rumor, he is the exact opposite of the religion of the moment, Liverpool, the model – his players also ride, but better.
The scenario would like that the Simeone cycle, coach as smooth as brilliant, who spent a life of player to be vomited before the games to maintain his grinta, ends as the stereotype adores: an exit in eighth and an end of championship d ‘Spain (Atlético is at the foot of the podium) is struggling. Then a resignation or a dismissal. Then a debate on a talk show to imply that the guy and his philosophy are dead and buried. May the picture go to hell! The Matelassiers disrupted and broke the alternation (Barça and Real Madrid) so exhausting in Spain (a title in 2014) and failed to sit on the roof of Europe twice (2014 and 2016). The Atlético has ten years of sabotage of big, medium and small clubs in the legs. We are right in what makes this striped jersey team dangerous: the habit of big battles, patience and mischief.
Except that Liverpool will qualify because … The club of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mané is European champion. The mojo is lost, it’s true. But rarely in eighthfinal.

Atalanta Bergamo – FC Valencia (Wednesday, 9 p.m.)
It would be nice if Bergamo won because … Ephemeral coach of Inter Milan in 2011 (five competitive games, four defeats), Gian Piero Gasperini is the man of a revolution in Italy since 2013 that he coaches Atalanta Bergamo: it matters what the Transalpine call with a touch of distrust the “continental game”, that is to say a different rhythm, superior to the ordinary of Calcio. This is the story of the biggest dwarf in the world (a normal type, therefore) of the Monthy Pythons: Luis Muriel and others do not play at the supersonic speed of a Liverpool or a Manchester City, but on a scale Italian, Bergamo is a textbook case, which earned Gasperini to be elected best coach of Calcio at the end of the 2018-2019 season. Who says rhythm says risk-taking, loss of balls, defenders having to manage in one against one against opposing attackers: in the realm of placed play and defensive systems belts and suspenders, it is not nothing.
Except that Valencia will qualify because … The force of habit, the superior technical skill (Rodrigo, Daniel Parejo), this hardness in the effort that inhabits the top Spanish player – Valencia is 6e de Liga – and a slow rise that saw them destroy FC Barcelona (2-0) three weeks ago, playing three times faster than the Catalans that day. The wind blew at the start of the season when the Singaporean owner dismissed coach Marcelino Garcia Toral, fresh winner of the King’s Cup, for sporting differences: he had the full support of both players and supporters. Former international player who passed through Bordeaux and coach in the Spanish youth teams (-16 years old, -17, Hopes), Albert Celades took the time to slip into his shoes and things got back to normal, with victories at Chelsea or Amsterdam during the round of pool. It’s as if the deep quality of the team speaks no matter who the coach is.
Tottenham Hotspur – RB Leipzig (Wednesday, 9 p.m.)
It would be nice if Leipzig wins because … Leipzig coach Julian Nagelsmann is both a fool and a symbol. Bad because his teams attack like beatniks, in flip flops, in all weathers and on all terrains, whatever the balance of power, and too bad if striker Timo Werner (supposedly the star) is what the English commonly called a “rabbit killer”, unable to score against strong teams. A symbol because German football has the wind in its back, embodying a kind of daring modernity that flourished until Paris-SG (Thomas Tuchel, ex from Dortmund) and Liverpool (Jürgen Klopp, ex from Dortmund too). This winter, Nagelsmann admitted to having been approached by Real Madrid… two years ago. To succeed Zinedine Zidane. At 32 years old. It’s very simple: at its best (or worst), Leipzig seems to be playing to play, forgetting to make it happen on the scoreboard as if by distraction. “It’s starting to be enough”, thundered Nagelsmann after a 2-2 victory in Lyon in December when his team should have won 5-0. In the meantime: it’s funny.

Except that Tottenham will qualify because … The last finalists in the Champions League are indestructible and there is a vague feeling that they did not finish their work, which consisted last spring of leaving the formations (Ajax, Manchester City) much better armed. Hugo Lloris is back for these knockout stages, it’s good and it’s time to remember that the captain of the world champions had been the best player of his formation in the Champions League last season, the striker Harry Kane (injured last year) having the stature of the one who will permanently mark the competition. Trained by Mauro Pochettino yesterday or by José Mourinho today, we feel the Spurs harder, more winning than their opponents in these eighths. Mourinho knows the Champions League like the mouse behind a Swiss cheese. Leipzig has time. Not the Soft. If we talk about football, it is clear that Tottenham will suffer. But if we talk about sport, that is to say mental, we bet on them.
