Ghana defender John Boye makes Rennes return

Posted On Tuesday, 19th February 2013

 

John Boye has returned to his French Ligue 1 side Rennes

Ghana defender John Boye has returned to his French club Rennes after being given a seven-day leave to attend his father’s funeral.

The centre-back returned to training with the Ligue 1 side on Monday evening in preparation for the club’s match this weekend.

Boye did not return to his club at the end of the Africa Cup of Nations last week because of his father’s burial in Accra.

The centre-back, whose father died last year, arrived in the country last week Sunday from the Africa Cup of Nations duties where the Black Stars finished fourth.

His father was buried in Accra over the weekend with the compassionate leave allowing him to pay his last respects to his mentor.

Boye’s dad died just two days after Black Stars captain Asamoah Gyan also suffered a loss with the death of his mother in November last year.

This brings to three the number of Ghana internationals who have lost either their father or their mother last year.

Midfielder Anthony Annan was the first to suffer the loss following the death of his mother during the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea.

Boye who plays for French club Stade Rennes is currently a key member of the Black Stars team expected to conquer Africa at the next Africa Cup of Nations.
