Former Legon Cities goalkeeper, William Essu, has passed away at the age of 22.

He died at the University of Cape Coast Hospital in the Central Region on Saturday, June 15, 2024.

Essu was a member of Ghana’s U-23 team that qualified for the AFCON in Morocco last year.

During his illness, he appealed to the Ministry of Youth and Sports to pay his outstanding bonuses to cover his medical expenses.

Tragically, he passed away without receiving the funds owed him for his service to the country.

This marks the second loss of a goalkeeper for Legon Cities in less than a year, following the death of Sylvester Sackey in September 2023.
