Friends of the late Ghanaian coach Kofi Nti who died at church in the United States are raising funds to export his body back to his mother in Ghana.

Kofi Nti’s friends in Virginia confirmed that their departed pal collapsed and died on Sunday morning at church, but the cause of his death has not yet been determined.

The day before his death, Nti was seen with friends and fans at Saturday’s home opener for the Richmond Kickers.

Friends of Nti are soliciting for funds from sympathizers within and outside USA to raise his body back to Ghana

“Sadly, as most of you know Kofi lost his father less than a year ago. Beside his soccer family he has no immediate family here. His mother is in Ghana and traditionally, we will have to ship his body back to Ghana.”

“We are collecting funds to assist with burial services as well as shipping his body back home. As a means of support I will be taking up donation to assist with the financial burden of such a loss. Please do not feel obligated to make a donation, and there is no minimum amount. Any assistance you can provide would do a world of good for Kofi and his family. Thank you!”
