MINISTER of Sport and Community Development Shamfa Cudjoe hassent her condolences on the death of former TT footballer Clyde Leon.
Leon, 37, died of a heart attack on Wednesday.
In a media release on Thursday, Cudjoe said, “As minister with the responsibility for Sport and Community Development, I extend heartfelt condolences to the family, friends and by extension the football fraternity on the passing of former national footballer Clyde Leon.”
Recapping his career, Cudjoe said, “Mr Leon was a former TT men’s national senior team player, where he made his debut in 2008 and had 48 caps for the national team. He also served as a coach for the national youth team. As a member of the W Connection family, Clyde displayed the drive for excellence which was refocused into the development of the game at the youth level, upon his retirement. While he performed duties as national youth team coach, he inspired numerous young footballers as they prepared to fly our national colours on the world stage.”
