Kenyan-based Ghanaian striker Stephen Owusu is dead.

The 37-year-old died on Saturday evening after a battle with a long illness that forced him to go back to Ghana for treatment.

Owusu was part of the Tusker squad that clinched the 2016 Kenyan Premier League (KPL) as well as the Football Kenya Federation (FKF) Shield Cup in the same year.

After a poor 2017 season in the Kenyan top-tier, Owusu was among the 14 players released by coach Robert Matano.

His last assignment in Kenyan football was in the National Super League (NSL) with Nairobi Stima.

Before coming to Kenya, he had previously turned out for Asante Kotoko, Heart of Lions and Accra Celtics among other clubs in home country in Ghana.

Heart of Lions snapped him up from 2006 to 2010 and he was shipped on loan to Tunisia outfit Esperance Tunis.

He has also played for Nigerian outfit Sharks FC and Ghanaian side Aduana Stars FC before coming to Kenya.
