Juventus are in mourning after the tragic death of 17-year-old Bryan Dodien, the player who was diagnosed with cancer at age 12 and had returned to the field in 2019.
At the time of his diagnosis in 2015, then-Juve midfielder Pogba had dedicated a goal in the Turin Derby to the youth academy player, showing off a shirt that said: ‘Bryan I am with you.’
Pogba also congratulated him after he beat cancer to make his comeback and play with the Juve jersey at Under-15 level in 2019.
Sadly, the news was announced today that Bryan Dodien passed away.
What a blessing it is that Bryan beat cancer and now played his first game with Juve U15. So proud of you my friend, merci for being an inspiration to me and so many others. Hope to see you soon! #fightcancer #beatcancer #thisiswhyweplay pic.twitter.com/J8Yr5Nvka3
