Gylfi Sigurdsson’s brother-in-law, Maximilian Helgi Ivarsson, has tragically passed away at age 11. 11-year-old Maximilian Helgi Ivarsson killed himself while playing with the shotgun, which he had taken from a locked gun closet. He died on September 8 five days before Sigurdsson played in Everton’s season opener against Tottenham.

Ivarsson’s father is believed to be a hunter, but it is not known whether his gun was involved. Sigurdsson has yet to publicly speak on the passing of Ivarsson, the half-brother of his wife Alexandra.

The Everton midfielder, his wife and other members of their family paid tribute to the late Ivarsson in Icelandic newspaper Morgunblaðið.

“It breaks our hearts to write these words,” the family tribute read. “The first word that comes to our minds is gratitude.

“Gratitude to have been able to be with you during this short time you were here and enjoy your wonderful presence.”

Sigurdsson joined Everton from Swansea City in the summer of 2017 for a then club-record fee of £40million.
