Cape Town - The Premier Soccer League (PSL) confirmed on Monday that teams will observe a moment of silence for the late Free State Stars player Sinethemba Jantjie.

Jantjie passed away this morning in a car accident.

"The moment of silence will apply at all Absa Premiership, National First Division and MultiChoice Diski Shield fixtures from Monday, April 1 until Sunday, April 7," the PSL said.

"The PSL conveys its heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Sinethemba Jantjie during this difficult moment."

Reports suggest that the accident occurred in Bethlehem at around 06:00.

Jantjie, 30, had signed a pre-contract agreement with Bidvest Wits ahead of the 2019/20 season after his impressive displays caught the eye of Gavin Hunt.

The left winger, who was a late bloomer and made his top-flight debut in his late twenties, joined Stars from Mbombela United in July 2016.

He was set to link up with Wits on July 1, at the end of his current contract.
