Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs boss Kaizer Motaung paid his respects to the late Bloemfontein Celtic honorary president Dr Petrus Molemela saying a 'great man' has been lost.

Dr Molemela passed away early on Sunday morning at the age of 83, leaving behind him a distinguished and much-respected career in South African football administration.

"Molemela has played a huge role in football," the Amakhosi Chairman was quoted saying on his club's website.

"I will remember him for his humour and energetic spirit which he infused through his commentary and passion for Siwelele sa Masele. We have lost a great man indeed.

"On behalf of Kaizer Chiefs, I wish to express my heartfelt condolences to the Molemela family and their friends.

"I trust that the bereaved will be consoled by remembering the moments of love and laugher they shared with 'Whitehead'."

In 2015, Celtic changed the name of their home ground, the Seisa Ramabodu Stadium, to the Petrus Molemela Stadium.

After buying the status of Mangaung United in 1984, Molemela changed the club’s name to Bloemfontein Celtic and served as chairperson until 2001.
