The player wrote an emotional poem for the late mother on his Facebook page and Instagram which read;
“Mother In the sky is your place, where will you be now. Where do you live, Left you so much After you left here. Just asking Because I’m so sure It is in heaven that you are, Yeah near Jesus Christ, I’m sure it’s your place. Because for you to be holy You don’t need canonize Just be the mother that was To Sanctify”, read part of the poem.
