The absence of Meyiwa will be felt in Chiefs change room

Meyiwa was involved in a horrific accident on the N3 freeway returning home to Pietermaritzburg, KwaZulu-Natal in November 2018.

The 19 old midfield star has not recovered from injuries sustained in a car accident in November, and a result is wheel-chair bound.

From thereon, he was admitted at Milpark Hospital for further observation from last year, with news this week from Doctors indicating he will not play his favourite sport: football or walk again.

At media brief last week Motaung said: “We are here to announce some sad news.”

“The player will terminate his career early in football,” also indicating Meyiwa will have a role to play at Chiefs going forward.

“This is the first time that we’ve ever had to deal with this situation in as far as players go, but we are doing our best to ensure that we give Wiseman all the support and care he needs. 

“We are shattered because he is very young, everyone had high hopes of him and his family expected a lot from his football career. Yet, in the same breath, we are grateful that his life has been spared.”

He joined AmaKhosi development side at the age of 14 in 2014.

He was promoted to the senior team in 2017-18 and played 21 times for Amakhosi.

He is an SA Under-17 and U-20 international and played at the 2017 U-20 World Cup in South Korea.

Messages of get well continued pouring in from fans, teammates and soccer administrators, at the time of publishing.

From SLM we say soldier on brother God has decided otherwise. To the family be strong for the youngster.
