“LaLiga commiserates with the people of Ghana on the explosion that occurred in Apiatse. Our thoughts are prayers are with you. For those who lost their lives, yɛ ma mu yaak),” the statement said.

The Spanish topflight has a history with Ghana, with several Ghanaian players – both past and present – excelling in the league.

The likes of Michael Essien, Mubarak Wakaso, Derek Boateng and quite recently Salisu Mohammed and Kevin-Prince Boateng have plied their trades in La Liga.

The league has also previously strengthened its ties to Ghana by making social media posts in the popular Twi language.

In 2019, the league also used its official Twitter handle to wish Ghanaian midfielder Michael Essien a happy birthday by applying the Twi and Pidgin languages.
