Former Paris Saint-Germain footballer Jordan Diakiese has died at the age of just 24. The shocking news was revealed by his current club, AS Furiani Agliani, who plays in the amateur leagues in France.
The club statement read:
“Our club is in mourning today. It’s with deep and immense sadness that we’ve learnt of the death of our player Jordan D, 24, yesterday afternoon in Paris. After arriving last July, this amazing kid was a winner both on the pitch and beyond. Always smiling, discreet, hard-working, he settled in very quickly. The whole Furianinca family is reeling from the news. The staff, Jordan’s teammates, as well as all the directors and volunteers have been hit hard. Our thoughts are, first and foremost with his family, friends and loved-ones. Rest in peace, Jordan. You’ll always be a Furianincu lion.”
The youngster made several appearances in the UEFA Youth League during the 2013/14 season but never made a senior appearance for the club.
PSG offers its condolences to his family and friends, and to his club.
