There are two burials in the family of Ivorian forward and therefore he will not appear in the qualifier match of African cup of nation to be held in 2017 in Gabon against Sierria Leone on 3rd September. Remember that Sierra Leone has to win the match to qualify for the AFCON 2017 whereas Ivory Coast need a draw to progress through to the African Cup of nations 2017. Remember that the father of Ivorian forward was passed away a few days ago and now his Aunt has also gone to the blessing of God.
“I’m travelling home to support my family,” Kalou told to media.
“Of course, I am unbelievably sad and feel empty,” he added, talking about the death of his father, after Hertha’s 5-3 penalty shoot-out win at Jahn Regensburg in the first round of the German Cup last Sunday.
“Football is a therapy for me at the moment. It will take a while to get over this.”
