Vuyo Mere played for Platinum Stars against Bloemfontein Celtic after death of father

Posted: 23 November 2017 Time: 07:32

Platinum Stars captain Vuyo Mere earned praise from Roger de Sa for playing in last night's match with Bloemfontein Celtic despite suffering a family bereavement the day before.

According to Stars, Mere's father passed away on Tuesday.

However, the former Mamelodi Sundowns fullback took to the field against Celtic in a goalless draw at a rain-soaked Royal Bafokeng Stadium.

Dikwena said on Twitter this morning: 'Coach Roger de Sa commended Mere's commitment for playing his heart out inspite of family tragedy. Mere lost his father on Tuesday.'

The point earned saw De Sa's side - who lost 2-1 to Phunya Sele Sele in the Telkom Knockout before the FIFA break - move off the bottom of the table and change spots with hapless champions Bidvest Wits.
