The Amakhosi teenager was one of the most promising young players in the Premier Soccer League, until a car accident sadly ended his football career

Kaizer Chiefs player Wiseman Meyiwa survived the car accident on the N3 highway near Villiers in the Free State on November 3.

However a trip to visit his family in Pietermaritzburg has meant that he can't play football anymore. Over the last two months he's received treatment but the doctors have been unable to cure his injuries.

The Amakhosi club confirmed the sad news with the following statement:

“We are very disheartened that Wiseman’s promising career had to come to an end so abruptly when he still had so much to offer,” said Chiefs chairman Kaizer Motaung.

“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.”

There's been an overwhelming response on social media from the PSL's top stars, Bafana Bafana, Banyana Banyana, legends and the media. You can read the Tweets dedicated to Meyiwa below.
