Hungary’s football chief shocked at Akeem Adams death

Adams died in the closing hours of 2013 after spending three months in a Budapest hospital following a massive heart attack last September.

In a letter to Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA) President Raymond Tim Kee, Dr. Csanyi described Adams, who played for Ferencvaros, as a promising young footballer with a distinguished personality.

“I was shocked and deeply grieved to learn about the death of the Ferencvaros player Akeem Adams,”Dr.Csanyi wrote.

“With his passing we have lost not only a talented and promising young footballer but also a distinguished personality. The memories of his exemplary life and football achievements will be treasured and long remembered by the Hungarian football community”.

Meantime, Tim Kee has complimented Ferencvaros Club for the support provided to Adams while he was not able to represent them in competition.

“While we followed him from the moment he signed a contract with your club in August, at no time did any of us expect that his tenure there would take such a tragic and unfortunate turn,” said Tim Kee in a letter to the club.

“But you maintained your pledge to take care of Akeem even as he was unable to continue representing the club on the field of play. You took care of him like he was one of yours and no amount of words can express how we in T&T feel about this”.

Akeem’s funeral takes place at the Mahaica Oval in the southern town of Point Fortin, on Friday.
