Kaizer Chiefs have sent a 'get well' message to the Baroka players and officials injured in an automobile accident last Sunday, 29 September.
The Limpopo-based club was returning from a match against United FC when their bus is said to have collided with an oncoming car.
Chiefs’ Executive Chairman, Kaizer Motaung, shared his hope that those involved in the accident would recover quickly.
He told the club’s official website, “On behalf of the club, I would like to wish the injured Baroka FC players and officials a speedy recovery.”
The good wishes were well received by the National First Division outfit, who last played against Chiefs in the Nedbank Cup in 2011.
Sello Chokoe’s charges famously ran out 2-1 winners in that contest.
The Siya crew got in touch with Baroka coach, Chokoe, to find out the progress of the injured officials and players.
He said, “The players were discharged from the hospital yesterday (30 September) at 11am. They will have four days to recover. We are happy that the league has postponed our match against Milano.”
Chokoe added how overwhelmed the club was to receive good wishes from a legendary club like Chiefs.
“It cant be explained and is so overwhelming. Everyone loves this team – it’s not everyone who gets a message from Chiefs. For me, it’s so touching and I’m sure the boys will be grateful and recover more quickly.”
