The Ghana Football Association has sent their condolence to midfielder Mubarak Wakaso whose four-month old baby boy died last week.

The Rubin Kazan player has confirmed the death occurred on Thursday after a short illness in Tamale.

The burial took place the same day according to Islamic customs and practices.

Wakaso was on holiday with his wife and two other children.

“I was deeply saddened to learn of the death of Mubarak Jnr and I would like to express my deepest condolences to you, your wife and your family on behalf of the entire management and staff of the Ghana Football Association,” a letter signed Ghana FA president Kwesi Nyantakyi said.

“Mubarak Jnr's passing is particularly poignant because he was so bright and active.

We do not know why these things happen.

“You can be comforted by the fact that your child was so handsome and so loved by all of us while he was with us.

“The GFA will offer you all the support you need in this difficult period.

“Please accept our heartfelt condolences at this heart-rending time and we ask you to please pass these sentiments on to your wife and the entire Wakaso family.”

Wakaso has received a lot of messages from his international teammates, Espanyol and his current club.
