According to Brazilian media, he made a huge donation to UNICEF to fight the spread of Covid-19. In this period of confinement, the football family is particularly bruised . First there was the death of natural cause from Michel Hidalgo , the first three-color coach to glean a title with the selection in 1984.

A very sad end for this football lover, born in Chad in 1951, and who will have left his mark on the world of football in France . After a childhood in Senegal, Mababa Diouf, whose real name, arrived in Marseille at the age of 18. He does not know it yet but his fate will be strongly linked to the Marseille city . When his father urged him to enlist in the army, the young man decided to pursue studies at the Institute of Political Studies in Aix-en-Provence. Finally, it is at the PTTs that Pape Diouf starts working life. He will make a decisive encounter there for the rest of his life.

From sports journalist to players' agent

Tony Salvatori, another employee who is also a spearfishing champion brought him in as a freelance to the newspaper La Marseillaise . Quickly hired, he was responsible for keeping abreast of the latest news from Olympique de Marseille. An occupation which allows him to make himself known to many football stars. After 12 years and a disillusionment because of Le Sport magazine, Pape Diouf decides to become player agent, and not just any player. Basile Boli, Marcel Desailly, Bernard Lama, William Gallas, Didier Drogba or even Samir Nasri… all were represented by the man who was also nicknamed Papa Diouf.

Rami charges "a person" with OM

 Rami charges © Supplied by Sports.fr Adil Rami Licensed by Olympique de Marseille last summer, Adil Rami did not digest. Pending the trial which should oppose him to the Marseille club, the tri-color world champion hopes that "everything will come out". Like all of his fellow footballers, Adil Rami has time ahead of him. Consequence of the coronavirus pandemic and the cessation of competitions.

The rest was almost logical for this famous figure in the Marseille football world. In 2004, he joined the city club as general manager, responsible for sports affairs. In the fall, Pape Diouf becomes president of the board of OM . A position he will hold until 2009. This period will be marked by the steady progression of the club. Set aside by Olympique de Marseille, Pape Diouf returned to his first love in the 2010s: journalism. Shareholder of the European communication school and the European Institute of Journalism in Marseille, he was appointed in 2012 knight of the Legion of Honor by François Hollande.

Thoughts and condolences for the family of Pape Diouf, journalist, agent, president @OM_Officiel . It has led the way in all of these areas. RIP
