Ex-PSL footballer passes away


Former Jomo Cosmos, Chippa United and Polokwane City player Tshepo Tomanyane has passed away.

Tomanyane, who was 39, passed away on Monday night while being transported to Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital from his residence in Johannesburg South.

He is survived by his wife Serwalo Tomanyane and five children.

"He had been fine all along and even went to one of the Masters games on Sunday, which they usually have over weekends," his wife tells KickOff.com.

"Being someone who was still passionate, he was involved in football coaching with some kids as well. Then on Monday he started complaining of shortness of breath and high temperature, which is when we got transport to take him to Bara [Chris Hani Baragwanath], where he was confirmed dead upon arrival around half past eight in the evening."

Tomanyane started his career at Bloemfontein Young Tigers and then moved to Witbank Spurs and African Warriors, before breaking into the PSL with Jomo Cosmos, Chippa United and Polokwane City.

He ultimately ended his playing career at Maluti FET College, before taking up coaching at the same club and later had another coaching stint with Warriors.
