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.
â€œI 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,â€ a letter signed Ghana FA president Kwesi Nyantakyi said.
â€œMubarak Jnr's passing is particularly poignant because he was so bright and active.
We do not know why these things happen.
â€œYou can be comforted by the fact that your child was so handsome and so loved by all of us while he was with us.
â€œThe GFA will offer you all the support you need in this difficult period.
â€œPlease 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.â€
Wakaso has received a lot of messages from his international teammates, Espanyol and his current club.
