PSL star Sinethemba Jantjie killed in car accident



Free State Stars winger Sinethemba Jantjie was killed in a motor accident in the early hours of Monday, according to the club.

The Premier Soccer League (PSL) club released a statement on Monday confirming the passing away of their player.

“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,” said the club in a statement.

“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,” the club said.

The PSL will observe a moment of silence for the late Jantjie.

The moment of silence will apply at all Absa Premiership, National First Division and MultiChoice Diski Shield fixtures from today (Monday, 01 April 2019) until Sunday, 07 April 2019.

The PSL conveys heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Sinethemba Jantjie during this difficult moment.

Meanwhile, tributes continued to pour in following the news of the player’s passing.
