The Oceania Football Confederation joins the Fédération Calédonienne de Football and the New Caledonian football community in mourning the passing of promising young footballer Faby Demene.
The 25-year-old midfielder was a current member of the AS Magenta squad, joining the club from AS Wetr.
AS Magenta president Michel Messeaud said Demene was: “a dutiful player”.
While coach Alain Moizan acknowledged his talents.
“A fighter, very deliberate. He took it with his foot, with his head. He always won the ball.”
OFC offers its sincere condolences to the family and friends of Demene.
