The South African soccer community has paid its respects to former Highlands Park, Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs coach Joe Frickleton, who passed away on Monday.

Frickleton, a Scotsman who played for East Stirlingshire in the Scottish league before moving to South Africa in 1964, then spent the next decade playing for Highlands Park. 

After his playing days ended in 1974, Frickleton then entered the coaching fray where his first gig was with Highlands Park. 

He would later move on to manage Kaizer Chiefs, where he won four trophies in a single season back in 1984, while in 1995 he won the CAF Champions League as coach of Orlando Pirates. 

It was reported back in May that Frickleton had health concerns and that he had been hospitalised in Cape Town and, on Monday evening, the PSL confirmed his death.
