Nadia Nadim is one of Danish soccer’s big stars and has played for Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City and now she represents Racing Louisville FC in the NWSL. Last summer, she was part of the Danish national team that played at the European Championship in England.
On Instagram, the 34-year-old now says that she lost her mother Hamida.
To a black box she writes:
“Words cannot describe what I feel. I have lost the most important person in my life and it happened so suddenly and unexpectedly”.
The Danish Ekstrabladet writes that Nadia Nadim’s father was killed by the Taliban in Afghanistan in 1999 and that the mother then fled to Denmark with her five daughters.
“She was a warrior who fought for every centimeter of her life. She gave me life not once but twice and everything I/we are is because of her. I have lost my home and I know that nothing will ever be the same,” writes Nadia Nadim.
Expert in Qatar
She writes that the mother died in a traffic accident where she was hit by a truck while cycling home from the gym. Hamida Nadim was 57 years old.
“Life is unfair and I don’t understand why her and why in this way. I love you and I will see you again,” writes Nadia Nadim.
Nadia Nadim is a pundit for British ITV during the World Cup in Qatar, a championship for which she is also an ambassador. She was included in the channel’s broadcast during Denmark’s match against Tunisia on Tuesday, and according to the Independent, Nadim should have received the death sentence during the match and then left the broadcast.
Whether Nadim will continue as an expert during the WC in Qatar is unclear.
