A 19-year old Ghanaian footballer in Denmark, Ibrahim Adom, has died after drowning in a swimming pool.
His former club in Ghana, Accra Sporting Club, announced his death in a post on social media.
Ibrahim Adom, a striker, signed for Danish club Hobro IK in January after moving from Accra Sporting Club.
Accra Sporting Club President Fiifi Parker Hanson revealed the tragic news on Facebook.
“I still can’t believe this, it’s just like I did not read the text well. I’m still confused and shocked. An uprising enterprise striker just left without a word,” he wrote.
“First and foremost, Adom was somebody who could light up a room with his sense of humour, warmth and personality. He is excelled with talent, ease, grace and humility. Nobody did it better upfront when he is on the pitch.
“The loss of Adom will be painfully felt by our club, supporters and indeed all who ever had the pleasure of knowing him. We love you Adom and your memory will eternally stay with us.” Hanson added.
