Maritzburg United midfielder Mondli Cele was killed last night in a car crash, just hours after scoring for his side in a 3-3 draw with Orlando Pirates.

Cele was just 27 years old.

It is with deep sadness to confirm the tragic loss of our midfielder, Mondli Cele, who was involved in a car accident this morning and passed away,”  confirmed Maritzburg United in a statement.

“The SAPS are currently investigating the circumstances around the accident. Our deepest condolences go to the family and friends during this extremely difficult period.”

Cele joined United in 2014, having been spotted by Mandla Ncikazi playing for Gamalakhe United in the Nedbank Cup against Santos.
