Local football fraternity has been plunged into mourning again following the death of former Premier Soccer League chief executive, Chris Sambo.

Sambo died on Wednesday night in Harare. The cause of his demise is still unknown at this time.

The PSL, in their condolence message, described Sambo as a dedicated football servant.

“The PSL learnt with shock and deep sadness of the untimely passing of former PSL CEO Chris Sambo. Mr Sambo was a passionate and dedicated football servant who gave a lot for the love of the game.

As PSL CEO, he served the League with distinction. He advocated for the full commercialisation of football and facilitated various competitions and sponsorship models.

His life, work and generosity will always be remembered by everyone who had the opportunity to work with him. As we mourn his sad departure, we celebrate his immense contribution in the development of local football.

We extend our heartfelt condolences to the Sambo family, friends and the entire football family. May the Lord comfort you during this difficult time. May his soul rest in Eternal Peace,” it read.

The latest developments come just a day after Mgcini Sibanda who spent most of his senior career playing in the Botswana Premier League died.

The Zimbabwean midfielder, 31, was reportedly unwell for some weeks and passed away on Tuesday.
