Platinum Stars defender Thabiso Semenya has thanked his club for their support during his darkest hour following the death of his wife.
Semenya's wife passed away in a car crash on March 9 when the couple were travelling to Royal Bafokeng Stadium to watch Stars play Kaizer Chiefs.
Semenya, who was given time off after the tragedy, made his return in his team's 2-1 win over Orlando Pirates at the same venue on Monday night.
“It's not easy. I don’t know how long it is going to take,” Semenya tells KickOff.com.
“When I get into the field I can forget everything for that moment and after the game it starts over again. I must continue to soldier on.”
The Limpopo-born defender is grateful to the Dikwena family for helping him cope with the loss.
“The support has been phenomenal. I will always treasure the support I got from the club. I don’t think there was another person to give the support that I have received from the club. They have been more a family,” Semenya adds.
