Cameroonian defender Thomas Etta Bawak says his side Coton Sport of Garoua will dedicate its upcoming CAF Confederations Cup game against Algerian side Jeunesse Sportif S Kabylie to late Cameroon international Albert Dominique Bodjongo Ebosse.
In a tweet on his official Tweeter handle on Sunday April 18, 2021, the Intermediate Lions defender declared the outfit will bring out its best performance in honor of the former Coton Sport forward.
“Friend, colleague, compatriot and former Coton Sport great. We will play for you brother.” The defender wrote.
Thomas Bawak described the Coton-JS Kabylie match as “More than just a game.” He used hashtags like #GoneTooSoon in memory of the fallen star.
Albert Ebosse who played for Coton Sport between 2008 and 2010, died in 2014 in Algeria where he played for JS Kabylie.
The 24-year-old forward who finished as top scorer in the Algerian top tier championship during the 2013/2014 season with 17 goals, died of traumatic brain injury after being reportedly heat by a projectile thrown on the stadium by unknown persons. The incident occurred after a league game between Kabylie and USM Alger.
Subsequent investigations however showed the former Unisport of Bafang and Douala Athletic Club attacker died as a result of beating as confirmed by Cameroonian medic Andre Moune who carried out the medical fact findings.
Thomas Etta Bawak and teammates will host former Albert Ebosse’s team, JS Kabylie on Wednesday, April 21 in match day five of the group phase of the CAF Confederations Cup at the Roumd Adja Stadium in Garoua.
Coton Sport will need a win from the game to ensure they sail through to the next round of the continental competition. The Coton Farmers lost to the outfit one nil during the away leg in Algeria early this year.
