Cape Town - The football fraternity along with fans shared their love and support to Wiseman Meyiwa after the announcement that he has been forced to retire from football on Thursday.

Kaizer Chiefs confirmed that Meyiwa has been forced to call time on his football career following a serious car accident last year.

"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 chairperson Kaizer Motaung as quoted by the club's website.

"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.

Chiefs also offered to support the 19-year-old to ensure that he had a successful future and adapted as easily as possible to his conditions.

"We will also assist with educational support to ensure he is self-sufficient in the future. We will also put proper support systems in place to make sure his home-based care is as comfortable as possible."

The football fraternity shared their heartfelt condolences to the player while offering their love to his family members.
