A Ugandan footballer collapsed and subsequently died following Frank Lampard’s equaliser for Man City against Chelsea on Sunday…
Ugandan footballer, Fahad Musana, who played for army team Simba FC, is believed to have suffered heart failure while watching Manchester City play Chelsea on Sunday.
The player was watching the game at a video hall in Bombo Town, but according to reports in the Guardian, he collapsed following Frank Lampard’s equaliser for City, which came five minutes from time.
His coach Fred Kajoba was left in shock by the events, telling reporters: “He even trained with us in the morning of the fateful incident and completed the session well.”
A team-mate Gerald Bagoole added: “We trained with him on Sunday morning, had lunch together. When the Premier League matches commenced, he went to watch from near his residence. He has been a passionate fan of Chelsea and would do anything for the club, apart from gambling.”
Lampard, 36, who played for Chelsea between 2001 and earlier this year, is the clubs all time leading goalscorer, having found the net on 211 occasions during his 648-game career at Stamford Bridge.
The former England international joined MLS franchine New York City this summer, but was then loaned to partner club Manchester City to retain his fitness ahead of the American league season.
He then came off the substitutes bench to dramatic effect on Sunday, cancelling out Andre Schurrle’s opener at the Etihad Stadium.
