Cameroonian Football Palyer Albert Ebosse Dies after being Hit by an Object Thrown by Spectators Following a Game in Algeria

Albert Ebosse died after fans chucked objects from the stands

The incident happened after Ebosse had scored in his team, JS Kabylie’s 2-1 home defeat to USM Alger on Saturday.

The 24-year-old was taken to hospital in Tizi Ouzou, east of the capital Algiers, after fans started throwing objects – alleged to be rocks – at the players as they returned to the changing rooms following the game.

Ebosse was pronounced dead with a head injury shortly afterwards with the Algerian interior ministry confirming that an investigation will be launched into the incident.

The player’s club confirmed the loss while opponents USM Alger published a press release on Saturday in which they said they were saddened to hear of the 24-year-old’s death and described the tragic incident as a ‘bombshell’.

Ebosse was the leading scorer in the Algerian league last season with 17 goals to his name.
