The South African Football Association (Safa) has confirmed that Bafana Bafana legend Phil "Chippa" Masinga has died.

A stunned Jordaan described the likeable and popular former player's passing as a sad day for the sport.

Masinga was admitted in Tshepong Hospital in Klerksdorp last month before he was transferred to a Johannesburg hospital where he was diagnosed with cancer.

Masinga was a key part of the Bafana Bafana side which won the African Cup of Nations in 1996, and which finished runners-up two years later.

'He is no ordinary legend, he was an worldwide legend'. "The thoughts of everyone at Leeds are with his family and friends".

Buddha Mathathe‚ the president of the South African Masters and Legend Football Association‚ told SowetanLIVE that Masinga passed away at a Parktown hospital on Sunday morning after a long illness.
