Kaizer Chiefs midfielder, Reneilwe Letsholonyane, has been given compassionate leave by the club following the passing of his father.
‘Yeye’ received the sad news while away in Polokwane on camp with his Amakhosi teammates, and rather than feature in tonight’s clash with SuperSport United it was decided that he would go home to his family.
The club’s official website explained, “Reneilwe Letsholonyane’s father passed away on Monday night. ‘Yeye’ received the unfortunate news while in camp with the Team in Polokwane.
“The Club has compassionately allowed ‘Yeye’ time off to join his family in mourning their loss. ‘Yeye’ will miss the match against SuperSport United taking place tonight at Polokwane’s Peter Mokaba Stadium.”
Meanwhile, Tsepo Masilela will undergo a late fitness test to decide whether he will be fit enough to be named in Stuart Baxter’s match day squad tonight.
