Adebayor in a discussion with Kossi Koudagba’s family at the burial

Togolese striker who died recently following a sickness was buried on Saturday.

Adebayor was there to commiserate with the family and pay tribute to the Kossi Koudagba who happens to have played with him. At the burial held in Davié (Togo), the former Arsenal star was received by the family and had the chance to interact with them.

Adebayor then took to Instagram to express how he felt: «it was a very emotional day for me. Kossi Koudagba was a very talented Togolese prospect with whom I had the chance to play. He was twice the top scorer in Division 1 and played an exceptional role in securing the first champion title for his team, the ASCK. In him, I saw a lot of talent and I saw the future of Togolese football. I even picture him in some of the biggest European clubs. It was with great shock that I learned about his death. So I made the trip today to support his family in Davié. As I stood in from of his grave, I experienced a unique sensation that words cannot describe. Little brother, may the earth be light upon you. For the family, I pray that you will find peace of heart, courage, and strength in this time of mourning» He emotionally posted.

SEA, [FR] c’était une journée pleine d’émotions pour moi. Kossi Koudagba était un espoir Togolais très talentueux avec qui j’ai eu la chance de jouer. Il a été deux fois meilleur buteur en Division 1 et a joué un rôle exceptionnel dans l’obtention du premier titre de champion de son équipe l’ASCK. En lui, je voyais beaucoup de talents et je voyais le futur du football Togolais. Je le projetais même dans les plus grands clubs Européens. C’est avec un grand choc que j’ai appris qu’il nous a quitté. J’ai donc fait le déplacement aujourd’hui pour aller supporter sa famille à Davié. Une fois devant sa tombe, j’ai vécu une sensation unique que les mots ne pourront décrire. Petit frère, que la terre te soit légère. Pour la famille, je prie pour que vous trouviez la paix du coeur, le courage et la force en cette période de deuil 😢❤️🇹🇬🙏🏾 #GodFirst #TogoUnited #GodsTime 🔹 SEA, [ENG] it was a very emotional day for me.
