Indonesia's football association slammed a rebel league on December 6 after the Paraguayan striker who reportedly had not been paid in months fell ill and died because he couldn't afford medical treatment. Mendieta, 32, died from a viral infection, reports said, adding he was owed four months' salary of about 120 million rupiah (12,500 USD) and was unable to pay for treatment or fly home.
