The Premier Soccer League (PSL) has expressed its profound sadness at the passing of former Caps United and Zimbabwe national team player, Tapiwa Khumbuyani.

Khumbuyani, 41, succumbed to liver cancer in his hometown of Gweru.

In a statement released by the PSL, Khumbuyani was described as not only a talented player but also an embodiment of passion and sportsmanship.
