Sparta Rotterdam youth player drowns during team outing
Kone made a trip to a local public pool with his teammates to celebrate the end of season when the tragic incident happened.
“What should have been a beautiful end of the season, turned into a big drama”, Dolf Roks, Sparta Rotterdam’s head of Youth Training told Telegraf.
“All strength wished to family, friends, teammates, parents, coaches and relatives. Rest in peace Ousmane.”
Only last week Kone celebrated the national championship with Sparta’s D-team.
In a statement on the Rotterdam club’s website the club states that it is “devastated” by this “tragic accident”.
“Sparta Rotterdam sympathizes incredibly with parents, relatives, friends, staff and teammates of Ouusmane”, the statement reads.
“Sparta Rotterdam will of course do everything possible to support them. More information is not yet known at this time.”
