Team Of Choice mourn Ntshangase passing

Maritzburg United can confirm the sad news of the passing away of one of our rising young stars, Luyanda Ntshangase, following a long fight after being struck by lightning on the 01st of March 2018

The club was informed of the news by the player's family at 14h00 today.

Club chairman Farook Kadodia was devastated by the untimely passing of the 21-year-old Ntshangase, who had looked set for a successful football career only to have his life tragically cut short.

"We are extremely sad about the loss of Luyanda, an exciting young player with enormous potential. He had been nurtured by the club and brought through our ranks, having been given his debut against Kaizer Chiefs two seasons ago by former head coach Ernst Middendorp.

The club will be meeting the Ntshangase family in order to finalize the memorial service and funeral details, which will be communicated to the football fraternity.

"On behalf of Maritzburg United Football club, we would like to extend our heartfelt condolences to the Ntshangase family in their time of bereavement - our prayers and thoughts are with you," added Kadodia.

Soccer Laduma would like to send our heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of the player, as well as to Maritzburg United during this difficult time of bereavement.
