MUNICH: Bayern Munich’s Ghanaian international defender Sammy Kuffour is out of the club’s immediate plans after his 15-month-old daughter drowned, the club said yesterday.
Kuffour, 26, flew back to Ghana on Friday in a plane chartered by the club just hours after returning from his end-of-year holidays.
“This is a bad start to 2003 for us,” said Bayern’s general manager Uli Hoeness. “It appears the child drowned.” The Bundesliga returns to action after its winter break on Jan 25. – AFP
