Ex-Dolphin Star Dies In Sudan

Former Dolphin Football Club striker, Endurance Idahor, on Saturday died while featuring in a Sudanese league match for his club, El-Merreikh.
Reports from Sudan suggest that the 25-year-old slumped and died after colliding with another player in a game against Al-Amal in the Sudanese Premier League.
In spite of initial attempts to revive the player on the pitch, medics rushed him to a hospital but he was confirmed dead inside the ambulance conveying him to the hospital.
When news of Idahor’s death broke inside the stadium, everyone stood in disbelief over the incident.
However, the player’s remains would undergo autopsy though unofficial reports suggest that he may have died of heart attack.
El-Merreikh in a brief statement on its website described Idahor as a player with a professional attitude.
“He is an example of a professional and committed individual and a symbol of loyalty. We will assure that justice takes place,” the statement from El-Merreikh read.
Idahor joined El-Merreikh from Nigeria Premier League (NPL) side, Dolphin FC, in 2006, after he had previously featured for Julius Berger and Igbino Babes.
The late Idahor was loaned out to United Arab Emirates (UAE) side, Al-Nasser in 2009 for a season.
In Idahor’s four-year stint with El-Merreikh, he has appeared in 176 games and scored 118 goals.
