Accra, Ghana: Former RB Leipzig star Agyemang Diawusie has shockingly passed away at the tender age of 25.

The former Germany U19s standout, who was enjoying a successful season with German third-tier club Jahn Regensburg, reportedly died suddenly due to what has been described as “natural causes,”.


Diawusie’s untimely demise has left the football community in mourning, especially after the promising talent showcased his skills on the pitch for Jahn Regensburg this season.

On Tuesday, the club released an emotional statement confirming the tragic news and expressing their deep sorrow over the loss.

The statement from SSV Jahn read, “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.

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.”

Born in Berlin to Ghanaian parents, Diawusie had represented Germany at various youth levels, showcasing his footballing prowess. His journey in professional football included stints with notable clubs such as RB Leipzig, Dynamo Dresden, SpVgg Bayreuth, and Jahn Regensburg.

His recent contribution to Jahn Regensburg was marked by a Bundesliga 3 game against 1860 Munich on November 4, making his sudden departure even more poignant.


The football world is left to reflect on the fragility of life, as a promising talent with so much potential has been taken away too soon. Tributes are pouring in from fans, fellow players, and clubs, remembering Diawusie’s impact both on and off the field.

As the community mourns the loss of a young football star, questions surround the circumstances of his sudden death. The term “natural causes” leaves room for speculation, but for now, the focus remains on supporting Diawusie’s family and respecting their privacy during this difficult time.

Agyemang Diawusie’s legacy will undoubtedly live on through the memories he created on the football pitch, and the football fraternity stands united in grief, remembering a talent that was taken away far too early.
