Ghana and former national
senior head coach Otto Pfister
expressed his sadness on the
passing of the former Central FC
and W Connection player.
Pfister included Adams in his
team during the 2014 World Cup
qualifiers and worked with the
player during several training ses-
sions in 2011.
"I am shocked by these shat-
tering news. We lost a jewel in the
football family and the best left
back in T&T. Peace be with you
Akeem," Pfister said. Another for-
mer head coach Francisco Matu-
rana, who gave Adams his senior
international debut in a friendly
against El Salvador in 2008, also
expressed his condolences.
good player and a very nice boy.
I was very sad to hear what hap-
pened to him when he suffered (a)
heart attack and now this news is
even more tragic. I know he will
be missed by many," Maturana
Akeem lives on
Akeem Adams will live on in the
hearts and minds of many who
had the chance to experience time
with him whether it was while he
was running around with the
number 52 shirt, donning the red,
white and black or having a one
on one with him in conversation.
As tributes continue to pour in
for him since his untimely passing
last month, plans are ongoing to
have his name honoured at Fer-
encvarosi, the Hungarian club
which he joined in August.
Vegel Tamas, a gentleman who
heads the club's supporters travel
group, said that although Adams
played only a few games for the
club, he left a lasting impression.
"Two weeks ago my girlfriend
and I had the chance to visit
Akeem in the hospital. He was
very glad to meet us and he said
to me that he is feeling strong and
he has got a lot of plans'," Tamas
"He only played a few games
but we liked him a lot because of
his mentality and the way he car-
ried himself. The fans really liked
him and they will miss him at the
club." Another Ferencvarosi fan,
Erik Gyovi, sent his tribute to the
former player, saying: "At first
glance, Akeem appeared to be
humble and professional. He was
a very good player. Here a lot of
people loved him. I'm very shocked
that he died, Akeem we miss you!
Go Ferencvaros. Peace T&T."
Trinidadian Robert Solomon just
missed out on seeing Adams, arriv-
ing in Budapest on the day of his
passing. Solomon made the trip
to bring in the new year and had
planned to carry some warm greet-
ings from T&T to the 22-year-old.
"It was so sad because I only
received the news that he had
passed on shortly after I arrived
in Budapest. But the love for him
here is very evident. He definitely
touched them in many ways," said
Solomon, who paid his respects
visiting the memorial site set up
for the player at the club's stadium
interest in Jones
English club Swansea City are
reported to be back in the hunt
for Stoke striker Kenwyne Jones
as Michael Laudrup looks to solve
his striker crisis.
Reports out of England on the
weekend suggest that the Tr&T
captain is back on Swans radar as
Laudrup has put a new striker at
the top of his wanted list after los-
ing Michu to injury for at least the
next six weeks but finding one will
be easier said than done.
The Dane admits competition
for the top players will be fierce
and fears he may not be able to
land his top targets. "We just have
to adapt to the situation with the
players we have and look at what
we can do in January, but it's not
easy," he said. "A lot of teams are
looking for attacking players so it
will be a difficult job. If it's the
right player, yes [we'll try to sign
them]. But at least five or six teams
will be looking for him." Jones'
contract at Stoke runs out in the

in the Caymans but we will give
it our best," said head coach Izler
