Senegalese football hero Papa Bouba Diop, who died on November the 29th has now been buried at a private ceremony at his birthplace near Dakar.

Several of his former teammates attended his ceremony on Friday the 4th of December. They wore the shirts of the national team bearing his name, and his number, 19.

The president announced that a museum at a 50,000-seater stadium being built outside the capital, Dakar, would be named after Diop, who has also been given a posthumous national award, the Knight of the National Order of Merit.

The highlight of his club career was winning the 2008 FA Cup with Portsmouth. He also played for Fulham, West Ham United, Birmingham City, and French club Lens.

May his soul rest in peace
