Ghanaian footballer Amoah Samuel has died aged 28 in Phnom Pen in Cambodia.
Amoah Samuel played for ISI Dangkor Senchey FC in Cambodia’s second-tier league. Although the cause of his death is unknown, he died after falling ill for a short while.
ISI Dangkor Senchey football club took to their Facebook handle to express their sadness over the demise of Samuel Amoah.
“ISI Dangkor Senchey FC and everyone associated with the football club are deeply saddened by the passing of former player and Academy Goalkeeper coach Amoah Samuel,”
“Today we mourn the loss of a great player, coach, and friend. We offer our sincerest condolences to his family and our support and love during this painful time. May he rest in peace,” the club posted.
With Ghana currently under lockdown with no flight coming in, it is unlikely that his body would be flown into his hometown of Techiman for the traditional burial.
