Zim football plunged into mourning as George Shaya dies

Legendary former national team and Dynamos midfielder, George ‘The Mastermind’ Shaya, has died.

He was 77.

The Mastermind died has passed on barely two weeks after it was announced that a documentary of his legendary caterer, as one of the most celebrated yesteryear footballers, would be premiered.

The five-time Soccer Star of the Year had been battling illness for a while, a reason doctors recommend that his left leg be amputated in 2019.

In his illustrious career, Shaya won the Soccer Star of the Year five times; 1969, 1972, 1975, 1976 and 1977, a record which is still to be replicated by any player in history.

The Soccer24 family joins the rest of the local foot fraternity in mourning a true legend of the game.
