Kaizer Chiefs captain, Siphiwe Tshabalala, has extended his condolences and those on behalf of his team to Cecil Lolo’s family.
The Ajax Cape Town defender passed away after being involved in a car accident in the early hours of Sunday morning.
Lolo helped Ajax triumph over Chiefs in the final of the MTN8 last month and helped them to a draw against the Amakhosi shortly after that.
Tshabalala extended his condolence to the Lolo family and indicated that although they were opponents on the field, those rivalries fall away off it.
“It is a great loss. We are devastated by the news. On behalf of the team, I send my deepest condolences to Lolo’s family and Ajax Cape Town,” Tshabalala told the Chiefs Website.
“We have lost a brother. As players, we are opponents on the field and one as a people,” the Amakhosi skipper concluded.
