The Ivorian International died Monday 5th of June after he collapsed at a training session in China for his League one side, Beijing Enterprises.
The former Newcastle of England midfield maestro could have signed for Galatasaray of Turkey earlier this year but failed medicals.
Tiote had some fascinating moments at Newcastle including the screamer that leveled the score line at 4-4 against Arsenal in what has been regarded as the greatest come back in the premier league. His trademark screamer shots ‘tioteeeeee’ will be missed in the football world.
He was part of the Ivorian team that won the African cup of nations in 2015 and had also featured for Ivory Coast in the world cup. #RIPTIOTE
