An Accra Hearts of Oak fan is reported to have died after collapsing during the game between Kotoko.
The die-hard Hearts supporter called Hudu Yaya aka ‘Car owner’ died at the Ridge hospital barely 24 hours after the painful defeat to rivals Asante Kotoko.
He was a staunch member of the club’s supporters wing chapter 3 based in Nima and also a founding member of the Greater Accra Supporters Union of Ghana.
Reports say Yaya collapsed when he got home after the game; he was rushed to the hospital where doctors failed to resuscitate him. He was pronounced dead in the early hours of Tuesday.
The Phobians lost after a monumental howler from goalkeeper Soulama Abdoulaye.
