Muslim footballer saves Spanish mosque: press

Mali international footballer Frederic Kanoute has saved a mosque from closure in Seville, Spain's ABC newspaper reported on Thursday.

Kanoute paid 510,860 euros (749,340 dollars) so that fellow Muslims in Seville would not find themselves without a mosque.

Kanoute, who plays for Sevilla in the Spanish League since moving from French champions Lyon in 2005, has also created a foundation in Mali to help children, particularly orphans.
