Free State Stars have paid tribute to Sinethemba Jantjie, following the football star's sad passing on Monday morning.
The 30-year-old winger tragically passed away in a car accident in the early hours of Monday morning, as confirmed by the Bethlehem outfit.
"It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Free State Stars midfielder Sinethemba Jantjie. Mr. Jantjie passed away in the early hours of the morning when his car was involved in an accident," confirmed Stars on the club's official website.
"The club plans to meet with Jantjie’s family, after which they will give further details of the funeral and memorial arrangements. Jantjie was a late bloomer in the PSL, making his debut in his late 20s in 2016/17. He was a regular starter for Stars and his good form caught the eye of Gavin Hunt at Bidvest Wits who had signed him on a pre-contract for next season," confirmed Ea Lla Koto.
Soccer Laduma send condolences to Jantjie’s family, Free State Stars, Bidvest Wits and everyone affected by his death.
