Kaizer Chiefs chairman Kaizer Motaung says he is “grateful” that Wiseman Meyiwa’s life has been spared after announcing that the midfielder has had to retire from football at the age of 19 due to injuries from a car accident.

Meyiwa was involved in an accident on November 3 last year near Villiers in the Free State on his way home to Pietermaritzburg.

There has been a delay in updates on his health, which Chiefs football manager Bobby Motaung and doctor Hashendra Ramjee explained on Thursday was in respect with Meyiwa’s wishes.

The former SA Under-20 and Under-17 international has been left a paraplegic due to a spinal injury.
