Ulysses Davila’s wife dies

He was devastated by the passing of his beloved partner this week and the football world has reached out to console him.

MacArthur FC said: “We are saddened to hear that Ulysses Davila’s wife Lily has tragically passed away overnight.

“The club wishes to express its sincere condolences to Uli, Little Uli and the entire family during this difficult time.”

“Everyone in the AFL is saddened to hear the tragic news from @mfcbulls of the overnight passing of Ulysses Davila’s wife Lily,” the official social media account wrote.

Several other Australian clubs also gave moving eulogies.

Attacking midfielder Davila comes from the youth ranks of local club Guadalajara.

Signed by Chelsea in 2011 at the age of 20, he signed a five-year contract in west London, becoming the first Mexican to join the club.

Davila was loaned to Waiters, Sabadell, Cordoba, Tenerife and Vitoria before making a permanent move to hometown Santos Laguna in 2015.

That meant Davila didn’t feature in the Blues’ first team.

He considered retiring in 2018, but Lily rekindled his love of football by inspiring him to accept a contract with Indian Premier League side Delhi Dynamos.

Davila told my Football Podcast this year:

Davila told My Football Podcast this year: “At one point I was thinking…if India doesn’t make it, I’m going to retire and I don’t want to know more about football.

My wife said, ‘Whatever you want, whatever you need, I’ll follow or stay, whatever you want.

“I thought, maybe it’s time to reset and change my whole life. Let’s try again.

“I said I was leaving and she said, ‘perfect’. “I played some games in India and told my wife, ‘I can still play’. “

Davila then worked twice for the Wellington Phoenix in New Zealand, during which time his son Uli Jr was born in March 2020.

However, travel restrictions and separation meant she could only meet his wife or children via FaceTime before they could move in with him in 2021.

Even so, Davila was named A-League Player of the Year for the 2020-21 season and received the prestigious Johnny Warren Medal.
