It was gathered that ex-Shooting Stars player slumped and died on Sunday evening, November 15.
The forward who was popularly known as ‘Eiye’ was training with Gateway FC of Abeokuta with the hopes of signing for them.
Usein was said to have been resuscitated on the pitch by medical men who rushed into action after he slumped. And according to the confirmation by Crown FC of Ogbomoso media officer Tunji Alabi, the player died later in the midnight.
Alabi said further that Eiye who also played for Crown FC was a very hardworking, easy going, loyal, very dedicated and God fearing player.
”It is so unfortunate that we have lost Usein and we pray that God will forgive him and grant him eternal rest. He was a good and dedicated player when he was playing for us in Ogbomoso,”
Yusuf Usman Usein actually started his football career on the streets of Ibadan in Oyo state before he was given the chance to join Shooting Stars. The lanky forward spent two seasons with the Ibadan-based club before he moved to Crown FC of Ogbomoso.
Gateway FC will be playing in the Nigeria’s second tier League which is the National League in the 2020/21 season.
