Bundesliga footballer Agyemang Diawusie passed away at the age of 25 due to “natural causes”, announced his current club Jahn Regensburg on Tuesday.

Diawusie played for a number of clubs in Germany including SV Wehen Wiesbaden, SG Dynamo Dresden, RB Leipzig U19s, and also for the country’s U15s and U19s sides.

“This Tuesday, SSV Jahn received the terrible news that Jahn professional Agyemang Diawusie died at the age of 25. The club is shocked and deeply saddened by this tragic event,” Regensburg said in a brief statement.

“The Jahn family mourns with the bereaved and their thoughts are with Agyemang's family, relatives, close friends and companions. Because of the terrible situation and out of respect for his family, we ask that their privacy be respected.”

German clubs across the country including Eintracht Frankfurt, Hamburg and others have expressed their condolences over the 25-year-old's death to his family and friends.

The footballer made 16 appearances across all competitions in the current season and was part of the club’s first team. Diawusie was a talented individual who showed great potential which earned him international caps for Germany.

He was last seen on the football pitch on November 4 against 1860 Munich where he was substituted in the 39th minute due to complaints of breathing problems. However, it is unclear at this time whether his death was linked to that complaint.

Diawusie played in Germany for the majority of his career. He made 55 appearances for third-tier club Wehen Wiesbaden and his second most matches came for RP Leipzig U19 side where he netted 19 goals and provided 11 assists in 48 matches.

In a total of 225 matches the 25-year-old played, he notched up 40 goals and gave 35 assists.
