Robert Eshun: Ex-Ghana firward dies in London

Ghanasoccernet reports that the ex-footballer died on Monday, October 23, 2023, after suffering a cardiac arrest.

The report suggests Eshun was driving himself to work when the unfortunate incident happened, which led to his death.

Eshun was a fan favourite during his time with Ghana Premier League side Asante Kotoko between the late 1980s and early 1990s.


He is fondly remembered for his decisive goal in the final of the FA in 1990, where the Porcupine Warriors recorded a 4-2 win over rivals Hearts of Oak.

He later moved abroad and had stints with clubs in Belgium, Turkey and Malaysia before hanging up his boots in 2003.

After parting ways with Kotoko, Eshun lined up for Turnhout, Lommel, Gaziantepspor, Dessel and Sarawak FA.

Meanwhile, Ghana football also recently mourned the death of former Minister of Youth and Sports, Enoch Teye (ET) Mensah.


ET Mensah sadly passed away at 77 on the evening of Sunday, October 1, 2023, while receiving treatment in South Africa.

The deceased remains Ghana’s longest-serving Sports Minister, having served under the Jerry John Rawlings government.

He also served as Education Minister and Minister for Employment and Social Welfare before becoming a Council of State member.

As a Member of Parliament, he represented the Ningo Prampram constituency from 1996 to 2016 when he was usurped by Sam George.
