Cape Town - Soweto giants Orlando Pirates are in a state of mourning following the passing of former Bucs team manager Lawrence Ngubane on Sunday.

Ngubane was committed to a hospital in Durban last week after suffering a stroke, and passed away on Sunday after failing to recover.

"Earlier in the year, Club Chairman Dr Irvin Khoza surprised Mr Ngubane after awarding him a Special Recognition Award at the PSL Awards along with Raymond Hack for their contribution to South African football," a statement published on their official website said.

"On behalf of Orlando Pirates Football Club, we would like to convey our sincere condolences to the Ngubane family.

"Details of his funeral have not yet been announced."

Ngubane spent seven years at Pirates before parting ways with the club in the year 2000.
