Former Black Stars and Bayern Munich Defender Samuel Osei Kuffour, known in football fraternity as Tuga has lost his mother, Gloria Abena Atea.
Auntie Abena Atea, as she was affectionately called, passed on on Friday evening in Kumasi but Ghanamansports is yet to establish the source unfortunate incident happened.
Madam Gloria Ateah made great sacrifice for Sammy and was credited with the remarkable story of selling her television just to ensure that Kuffour attained his desire of becoming a footballer.
The now retired footballer’s love for his mother is well known and despite the nature of his work these days as a football pundit, Kuffour always makes time to travel to Kumasi to be with his mother.
The family is yet to announce any arrangements following the sad demise.
Ghanamansports wishes the family Osei Kuffour and his family our condolence.
