Hellas Verona expressed their condolences after the sister of Emmanuel Agyemang Badu was murdered in Ghana.
According to reports, Hagar was shot and killed in Berekum on Wednesday.
Police are searching for a man in his 40s identified as Kwabena Yeboah, who is believed to be on the run.
Verona released a statement expressing their “deepest condolences and most affectionate support for Emmanuel Badu following the death, in tragic circumstances, of his sister Hagar.”
It has been a traumatic year for Badu, who was hospitalised during pre-season training over the summer when diagnosed with a pulmonary embolism.
The 29-year-old is at Verona on loan from Udinese and has made four very brief substitute appearances for Hellas this season.
