Sierra Leone legend Mamadu Alphajor Bah dies in car crash

Mamadou Alphajor Bah

Former Sierra Leone player died in a car accident on Wednesday in Freetown.

The 39-year-old was pronounced dead after he was taken to the hospital after a truck coming from the opposite direction hit his car causing him excessive bleeding.

Sierra Leone legend Mohamed Kallon expressed his sorrow to BBC Sport saying: “I am still in shock and deeply saddened by the loss of our friend, brother and father Mamadu Alphajor Bah.

“He was an outstanding footballer, a great team-mate, very committed and hard working, always fun to be around.

“It’s a big loss and we’ll surely miss him.”

Bah scored 12 goals in 35 appearances throughout his eight-year international career. He also played for many clubs in Europe and Asia before finally hanging his boots in 2012.

Youssef Wael is a massive Al Ahly and Manchester United supporter from Cairo, Egypt. One of the few Egyptians who never really wanted to have a career in football, just played it as a hobby. Wael also played squash for 7 years.
