Ghana's African Cup winner Attuquayefio dies

12 May 2015, 18:27

Accra - The Ghana Football Association says 1965 African Cup-winning forward Cecil Jones Attuquayefio has died aged 70.

The GFA said Attuquayefio died on Tuesday at Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital in the capital Accra. He was reported to have been suffering from cancer.

Attuquayefio was part of the squad that clinched successive African Cup of Nations titles for Ghana when it won at home in 1965.

He was assistant coach of the Ghana Under-23s who won bronze at the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona. As head coach, he led Benin to its first African Cup finals in 2004. He also served in various administrative roles with the GFA.

Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan said Attuquayefio was his first coach, and gave him his big break with Accra club side Liberty Professionals in 2002.
