Emotional Tributes Continue To Pour In For Wiseman Meyiwa

Kaizer Chiefs recently confirmed that midfielder Wiseman Meyiwa has retired from football, following injuries sustained in a car accident last year. Have you seen how social media reacted to the news?

The 19-year-old was involved in a car accident in November 2018, and while he was on the mend, the club was tight-lipped regarding his progress.

However, on Thursday, Amakhosi called a press conference to reveal the devastating news that Meyiwa, who once had a promising career, has been forced to retire from the beautiful game.

The teenager sustained vertebrae and spinal cord damage, and is now wheelchair-bound as a result of the serious accident.

Chiefs' Bobby Motaung did say, though, that Meyiwa will remain a part of the club and that he will continue to get support from the Glamour Boys.

Since the news broke, tributes on social media have poured in:
