Senzo's Legacy Lives On In Mzansi Soccer

Standard General: Senzo Meyiwa

By Soccer Laduma - Aug 23, 2017 04:11 PM

Senzo Meyiwa is a name that will never be forgotten in Mzansi’s football by fans and players alike. Repressing Orlando Pirates and Bafana Bafana, South African fans held the legend in high esteem.

The Bucs legend lost his life on 26 October, 2014, and South Africa mourned the loss of  of its most promising stars. 

Meyiwa’s on the field heroics kept the fans on the edge of their seats while he played a key role in the dressing room, where he was not only a role model but a leader too. His achievements between the sticks rewrote the history books. He was part of the double treble-winning side that brought home two Absa Premiership titles, a Nedbank Cup, a Telkom Knockout and two MTN8 titles in the space of just two seasons. 

A notable moment in his career was the 2013 CAF Champions League, where the finished as runners-up. He conceded only eight goals in eight games!

Meyiwa played 100 league games for Bucs and made his Bafana debut on June 2, 2013 in an away victory over Lesotho. A year later he was murdered during a robbery at his girlfriend’s home.

The world’s football fraternity was shocked by Meyiwa’s death, and condolences messages poured in from all over the world, including from former FIFA president Sepp Blatter and legendary Spanish goalkeeper Iker Casillas, and was nominated for the CAF African Player of the Year award shortly after his death.

Meyiwa will never be forgotten by Mzansi. May his soul rest in peace.

His death touched me in ways that I never thought it would;it felt as though I had lost my family member!It really pained me for a very long time and I felt so sad for his loss.Indeed'death be not proud'.His spirit will forever live in our hearts.I still vividly remember the penalties he saved in Congo and the passion he displayed afterwards.May his soul rest in peace.Once a pirate,always a pirate!
