Dr Khoza pays tribute to the late Bonginkosi Hlophe.

Premier Soccer League (PSL) Chairman Dr Irvin Khoza, on behalf of the NSL Executive Committee and all Member Clubs, has paid tribute to the late football administrator, Mr Bonginkosi Hlophe.

Hlophe was the owner of Maritzburg City Football Club and served in various roles in the SAFA structures. He was also a venue manager during the 2010 FIFA world cup.

“He was one of the selfless football administrators who spent his own money without expecting anything in return. His departure is unfortunate because his story and contribution to football, more especially in player development, will be recorded without him. The players that he produced include Papi Zothwane, Jimmy Tau, Mbulelo ‘Old John’ Mabizela, Siphesihle Ngobese, Mlungisi ‘Pro’ Gumbi, Andile Cele and many others. We supplicate that God gives strength to his children and extend family. May his soul repose peacefully,” said Dr Khoza.
