Andre Ayew and Jordan Ayew have paid a glowing tribute to former Olympique Marseille president, Pape Diouf.

The 68-year-old was pronounced dead after contracting coronavirus on Tuesday.

The Senegalese was president between 2005 and 2009 when Marseille finished second in Ligue 1 twice and reached two French Cup finals.

They went on to win a first French league title in 18 years in 2010.

Andre and Jordan who began their professional career at the Stade Velodrome, took to social media to grieve over their mentor’s death.

Diouf became the first black president of a first-tier European football club having assumed the position as the Ligue 1 club’s head in 2005.
