Minister Cudjoe extends condolences on the passing of former National Footballer Clyde Leon

As Minister with the responsibility for Sport and Community Development, I extend heartfelt condolences to the family, friends and by extension the football fraternity on the passing of former national footballer, Clyde Leon.

Mr. Leon was a former Trinidad and Tobago Men’s National Senior Team player, where he made his debut in 2008 and had 48 caps for the national team. He also served as a Coach for the National Youth Team.  As a member of the W Connection family, Clyde displayed the drive for excellence which was refocused into the development of the game at the youth level, upon his retirement. While he performed duties as national youth team coach, he inspired numerous young footballers as they prepared to fly our national colours on the world stage.

On behalf of the Ministry of Sport and Community Development and the Government of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago, by extension, I offer my deepest sympathy to all his loved ones and I pray that the Almighty comforts them in this time of grief and immeasurable loss.

May he rest in peace.
