Accra Hearts of Oak is saddened to learn of the passing of our former goalkeeper Soulama Abdoulaye.
The former Burkinabe international served us diligently and admirably for two seasons.
Soulama had joined us from arch-rivals Kotoko, with whom he had a stellar and trophy-laden seven years, but he soon won over our fans with his commitment and performance.
The goalkeeper was our safest pair of hands in the 2014/15 season and he’s one of our best performers in the CAF Confederation Cup in his debut season.
Soulama’s two-year contract came to an end at the beginning of the 2016/17 season and he left for his home country.
We received news of his health problems somewhere in April, but after a long fight, Soulama finally gave up on Friday.
We extend our deepest and sincerest commiserations to the family of our former goalkeeper and pray that he rests peacefully.
