A PSL statement reads: “It is with sadness and regret that we inform you of the passing of the PSL Life President, Dr Leepile Taunyane.
“The PSL Executive Committee (EXCO) will meet with the family tomorrow.”
Taunyane began his career in Alexandra as a football administator in the 1960s, where he also mentored a young Irvin Khoza, in the 1970s.
Despite his advanced years, Taunyane's commitment to football was strongly in evidence, as he still went to work at the PSL offices every day.
KickOff.com sends condolences to his friends and family. May he rest in peace.
