Hungarian FA sends condolences

The president of the Hungary Football Association has issued a letter of condolence to the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association and the family of Akeem Adams following the passing of the former national footballer last month.

Dr Sandor Csanyi, in a letter addressed to TTFA president Raymond Tim Kee, stated: “I was shocked and deeply grieved to learn about the death of the Ferencvaros player Akeem Adams.

“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.

“On behalf of the Hungarian Football Federation and the whole Hungarian Football community, I would like to express our deepest sympathy to your association and kindly ask you to convey our sincere condolences to the bereaved family.”

President Tim Kee also issued letters to the Ferencvaros club and the Hungarian FA, expressing gratitude on behalf of the Trinidad and Tobago football community and the country at large for their care towards Akeem and his family. This letter was published by the Ferencvaros club and appeared in the Hungary media.

“On behalf of the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association and the local footballing fraternity, I wish to express my sincere gratitude to the Ferencvarosi Club for going the distance with Akeem,” Tim Kee wrote.

“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. 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 Trinidad and Tobago feel about this...

“For all your care and support of Akeem and his family, we at the TTFA say a heartfelt thank you and do look forward to a continuing relationship between both organizations,” Tim Kee concluded.

Adam’s funeral is scheduled for 11:30am at the Mahaica Oval tomorrow.
