'This is for you Dad' what Ake said after His Father Dies Watching Him Score


Nathan Ake has emotionally revealed that his father Moise passed away on Wednesday night just minutes after he scored for Manchester City in the Champions League.

Holland international Ake, who recently left his national team camp due to personal and private circumstances, scored his first Champions League goal as he opened the scoring in a 6-3 win against RB Leipzig last night.

But on Thursday, the 26-year-old posted a touching tribute to his father, Moise Ake, uploading a photo of him scoring at the Etihad followed by a photo of himself with his father to the right of him.

Nathan Ake’s father was battling with a serious illness over the past few weeks.

His father was from the Ivory Coast and therefore Ake was eligible to represent them, but he opted for Holland instead where his mother was from and where his father migrated to.

Our thoughts are with Nathan Ake.

Condolences to the family.
