Former Kaizer Chiefs star Lucky Maselesele has reportedly died, which arrived on Friday night. 

Soccer Laduma were the first to report the death of the 41-year-old player, although the circumstances of his death were not yet known. 

“I can confirm the sad news, but for now I ask you to give us time to process what happened. I will be at your house while I speak, but please understand that I will not comment further on this matter, ”Isaac Mabotsa, Maselesele's former teammate at Chiefs, told Laduma. 

Maselesele, a talented winger, passed the Transnet School of Excellence and signed his first professional contract with the Kaizer Chiefs in the 1997/8 season after joining the South African U20 team that competed in the 1997 FIFA U20 World Cup.

He was signed by Chiefs after Maselesele received a three-month probationary period from Dutch PSV Eindhoven. 

He did not play much for the Chiefs senior team, but is fondly remembered for scoring the winners against the Orlando Pirates in both the 2000 Vodacom Challenge final and the 2002 Telkom Charity Cup semifinals 

He had A rather nomadic career, he hit rock bottom in 2009 when Maselesele tested positive for cocaine and was kicked out of the Premier Soccer League and Maritzburg United.
