Anthony Baffoe, Kenichi and others pay tribute to Soulama

Ex-Black Stars defender Anthony Baffoe has been joined by the likes of former Hearts of Oak coach Kenichi Yatsuhashi to pay tribute to former Hearts and Kotoko goalkeeper Soulama Abdoulaye.

The goalkeeper passed on this morning in his native Burkina Faso after battling with illness for some time.

The 38-year-old played for both Kotoko and Hearts of Oak.

Following his return from Ghana where he spent a large part of his career, Abdoulaye Soulama was out of football and stayed in his hometown in Banfora before losing his life in Bobo-Dioulasso where he was receiving medical care.

The former first-choice goalie for the senior national team of Burkina Faso, The Stallions, had been hospitalized at the beginning of the year at the Banfora Regional Hospital.
