The 58-year-old sadly passed away recently after a short spell in hospital, with the South African football fraternity speaking fondly of the former Bafana and Orlando Pirates goalkeeper coach in the days that followed.
Now, as Revoredo’s family, friends and colleagues said their final farewell to him on Monday, it was decided that Itumeleng Khune, Brilliant Khuzwayo, Bruce Bvuma, Brylon Petersen and Baloyi would be the ones to carry him.
Chiefs’ players also sang songs in-between the speeches on the day, and Kaizer Motaung spoke of the South American’s spirit.
According to Chiefs’ official website, Motaung said, “Alex pursued his passion by migrating to South Africa and coming to do here exactly what he was doing in Brazil.
“Football brings people together and Alex is a prime example of that. He has now gone back to his creator. The players, however, should know that in the dressing room and on the pitch… Alex’s spirit will be there. He will never be forgotten.”
