The Senegalese Football Association on Tuesday evening was hit by a very sad news announcing the death of Pape Diouf, following a short desease.
This is a big loss for football in Senegal and in the world, as he has dedicated all his life to that discipline as a sports journalist, player manager, President of Olympique de Marseille and television consultant. He deserves all our respect and consideration for his remarkable carrier and his huge contribution to the development of football in Senegal.
We wish to extend sincere condolences to the members of his family and hope that they will have the strength to face this ordeal. May he rest in peace.
