Ex-South African football star Marc Batchelor who played for Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates has tragically passed away.

Reports in South Africa are suggesting that the former striker was shot several times by two men on motorcycles as he was driving into his home.

The reason for the shooting is still unclear but the police have started investigations on the matter.

“Police are investigating a murder case after a former soccer player, Marc Bachelor was attacked by two men driving a motorbike in Olivedale outside his house,” South African police spokesperson Lt- Colonel Lungelo Dlamini told IOL.

“The suspects then drove away without taking anything. The motive for the attack is still unknown. No one has been arrested.”
