Cameroonian footballer Joseph Bouasse suffered a heart attack and died afterwards on Monday in Italy. He was 21. He was plying his trade at Universitatea Cluj in Romania but had been in the Italian capital Rome since the Covid-19 lockdown.
The sad news was announced by Italian club AS Roma, where Bouasse, who also played in midfield, was groomed.
He joined Roma from his native Cameroon in 2015 as a promising youngster but couldn’t break into the first team, prompting a loan move to Serie B side Vicenza in 2017.
