Safa, PSL mourn passing of Abe Krok

Posted: 22 January 2013 Time: 06:08 pm

Founding member of the PSL and former Mamelodi Sundowns chair Abe Krok passed away on Monday, and was buried today in Johannesburg.

“This is a massive loss to the South African football family. [Krok] contributed a lot to the wellbeing of soccer in general and was the founding member of the PSL. He was the chair of Sundowns at a time when the club dominated local soccer,” Safa president Kirsten Nematandani says.

“He was a gentleman through and through and his incisive knowledge of the local game was invaluable. He will be greatly missed.

The PSL extended its heartfelt condolences to Krok’s family.

PSL chairman Irvin Khoza said: “Abie will always be remembered for the role he played in South African football. His contribution to the game will never be forgotten. He might be gone, but his legacy will live for a long time.

“On behalf of all the PSL clubs, both Premiership and National First Division, I would like to offer my condolences to his family during this difficult period.”

And the sad part aldair, when you crock, NOBODY will know that, not even on this forum ... you will be buried in a pauper's grave, and the difference is that Abe Krok will be given an almost state funeral.

@ Nkuja, heartless bastards are the type that NEVER in their pathetic lives got any attention because they did not have decent parents to raise them. This thing was raised by dogs, but even dogs have more personality so I will say wild dogs.
