Cameroonian player Albert Ebosse died yesterday after he was hit by an object which was thrown at him by spectators after a game in Algeria.

The incident happened on yesterday (August 23) after Albert Ebosse scored in his team, JS Kabylie’s 2-1 home defeat to USM Alger.

Fans started throwing objects presumed to be stones at the players as they returned to the changing rooms after the game. Ebosse was taken to a hospital in Tizi Ouzou.

The 24 year old player who was the leading goal scorer in the Algerian league last season with 17 goals to his name was pronounced dead with a head injury shortly afterwards with the Algerian interior ministry confirming that an investigation will be launched into the incident.

The player’s club confirmed the loss while opponents USM Alger published a press release yesterday in which they said they were saddened to hear of the 24-year-old’s death and described the tragic incident as a ‘bombshell’.

May his soul rest in peace.
