has reacted to the death of his Senegalese comrade, Papa Bouba Diop.

Former Senegal international Papa Bouba Diop has passed away following a long illness at the age of 42.

“Pope Bouba, It was with a broken heart that we learned of your disappearance. Know that you will remain in our hearts forever even if you left without saying goodbye to us. RIP #Bouba 🩁💔”
