Former Zimbabwe goalkeeper George Chigova has passed away at the age of 32 after reportedly collapsing at his home in South Africa.
Chigova – who played 32 times for his country – suffered a heart attack in July before attempting to return to football. He last played for South African outfit SuperSport United, who he joined in 2020.
The club confirmed his passing on Wednesday, saying: ‘It is with great sadness that we have learnt of the passing of former SuperSport United player, George Chigova.
‘George was a great club man, a gentle giant loved by current and former players and everyone at the club. Even though his official time with SuperSport ended in June 2023, he was a regular visitor to the training ground and stadium to support the team.
‘We convey our deepest condolences to his family and friends both in South Africa and in Zimbabwe during this difficult and very sad time. May his soul rest in peace.’
