Nigerian footballer and former Torino striker, Akeem Omolade, 39, was found dead in his car in Italy just days after complaining of pain in his legs.

Emergency services found him unresponsive in a Peugeot in Sicily's capital Palermo on Monday, June 13.

Initial examination showed no obvious external injuries. Omolade's family said the Kaduna-born player had complained of leg pains days before.

The Nigerian represented the Maroons in Serie A, Italy's top flight, between 2001-2003, making five appearances in total.

Omolade also represented 11 other clubs in the country, including Treviso, Novara, and Reggiana before his retirement in 2017.

Torino said in a statement: 'President Urbano Cairo and all of Torino Football Club sincerely share in the Omolade family's grief at the passing of our former player Akeem Omolade.

'Signed from Treviso, he first played in our youth side and then for the first team, making his Serie A debut against Inter Milan on February 2, 2003.

'The entire Torino family sends its deepest sympathies to his loved ones, his parents, and his many friends.'

'Omolade spoke out against racism after being targeted by a group of the club's 'ultras'.

Never heard of him,
How come he never played for naija?
But then proper investigation should be carried out.
Hope he wasn't killed, Italy is rough!

RIP young man.

After retiring some players usually go through extreme leg pains. He should have gone for urgent medical check up.

I remember the story of Batistuta, he said the pain was too much he asked the doctor to cut off both legs:
