World Of Football Mourns Again as Diop Dies at 42

Shortly after the death of Argentine football legend Diego Armando Maradona, the world of football is once again thrown into mourning following the death of former Senegal, Fulham and Portsmouth midfielder Papa Bouba Diop who died at age 42.

Papa Bouba Diop (28 January 1978 – 29 November 2020) was a Senegalese professional footballer.

Diop was considered a strong and aggressive player, his playing style and ability drew comparisons to Patrick Vieira.
He made 129 appearances in Premier League and also had spells in England with West Ham and Birmingham City.

The midfielder played for Senegal at the 2002 World Cup and scored the winner in the tournament’s opening game as his country beat France 1-0.
“Once a World Cup hero, always a World Cup hero,” Fifa posted on social media.
A post on Fulham’s Twitter account said the club was “devastated” and, using Bouba Diop’s nickname, added: “Rest well, Wardrobe.”
