Strømsgodset and NFF Buskerud share this information in consultation with the next of kin.
This is a brutal and shocking message to receive – it affects all of us in Strømsgodset, it affects Drammen and the entire football family. Our thoughts go primarily to Mounir’s family and survivors in a very difficult situation. They have lost a father, husband, brother, son and dear family member.
Mounir has worked as circuit manager for player development in NFF Buskerud for the past four years, and was supposed to have his very first day of work as a new top player developer in Strømsgodset today.
In Mounir, we have lost a truly unique fellow human being. He was friendly, generous, inclusive and positive. He was professionally skilled and inspiring. Someone who cared and participated. Someone we were all looking forward to meeting, someone we all have only good and warm feelings for.
Mounir Hamoud came to Strømsgodset and Drammen before the 2012 season, after six seasons in Bodø/Glimt. He was a SIF player for eight seasons, and that during one of the club’s strongest periods. Mounir helped win the historic series gold in 2013, and also took part in the two silver medals in the Eliteserien (2012 and 2015) and the cup final in 2018.
First and foremost, Mounir has left deep traces everywhere he has traveled. As a player and teammate, as a coach, player developer and professional. As a colleague and fellow human being.
Strømsgodset is in mourning. Mounir Hamoud will be deeply missed.
More information about the funeral and commemoration will come at a later date.
On behalf of the entire Strømsgodset
