A Nigerian player, Ado Hadi, with CD Madridejos in the Spanish Terceira division, collapsed and died during his side’s home match against SP Cabanillas on Sunday.
It’s yet another tragedy for the football family following the confirmation of the death of Ado Hafiz by the league body.
Hadi reportedly collapsed “for no apparent reasons” in the 39th minute of the ill-fated match, the medical team on the ground at the Municipal Toledo ground immediately came to his aide but efforts to revive him proved abortive as he was later pronounced dead minutes after.
“The Castilla-La Mancha Football Federation and Castilian-La Mancha football, with its President Pablo Burillo at the helm, are totally dismayed at such an event,” the statement added. “For this reason, the federative body remains at the disposal of CD Madridejos for everything it needs in these difficult times.
Ado played for Jigawa Golden Stars. A team he played for three seasons ago in Nigeria before moving to the Spanish side two summers ago.
Until his death, Hadi was one of the four Nigerian players playing for CD Madridejos.
