Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune has expressed sadness over goalkeeping coach Alexandre Revoredo, who unexpectedly passed away on Thursday.

Chiefs announced that the club's goalkeeper coach, Revoredo, had tragically passed away although no details were given about how it happened.

He was 57.

Khune took to Twitter to express his condolences and thanks to the Revoredo on the impact he played on his career.

"May Your Soul Rest In Eternal Peace #Beleza thanks a lot for the role you played in my career. I'm going to miss you," wrote the Bafana Bafana player.

Revoredo, who was born in Rio de Janeiro, arrived in South Africa in 2007 to work alongside Julio Leal at AmaZulu.

Aside from his coaching career with Usuthu, he also spent time with PSL clubs including Golden Arrows and Orlando Pirates.

He spent four years with the Sea Robbers and left in 2015. Revoredo then joined Chiefs to work with head coach Steve Komphela and has been with them since 2016.

Nonetheless, his death still comes as something of a shock as it was seemingly apparent he was not in any ill health.
