Soccer. Bamba Abdul Kharyme passed away

Bamba Abdul Kharyme died on Wednesday at his home in Niort of a heart attack. He was 53 years old.

He played for the greens then trained by Yves Bischoff in the late 90s.

Born in Yamoussoukro, the Ivorian capital, in a family of footballers, the rough stopper with an irreproachable lifestyle was the first of the five players recommended by Guy Roux to make the journey between Auxerre and Colmar. He said of Guy Roux that he was “like my father”.

He had spent six years at AJ Auxerre, pillar of the reserve team. He will rub shoulders with another Ivorian of origin, Djibril Cissé whose father had trained him as a junior in Côte d’Ivoire.

Having become a coach, he will coach the Spaniards of Colmar.

Bamba Abdul Kharyme had met his wife Isi in Colmar. He leaves two children, Amira and Farras. Our newspaper offers its sincere condolences to the bereaved family.
