‘Very sad to see this image. His combination with Percy Tau was amazing,’ wrote Pitso Mosimane after seeing the photo of Khayelihle Shozi.

Pitso Mosimane and many other South African Twitter users have been left both shocked and saddened after learning that former Mamelodi Sundowns player Khayelihle Shozi is now living on the streets.

In 2020, Shozi started going on a downhill spiral, and by 2022, he went missing twice. After he was found, his family admitted him to a psychiatric hospital.

It appears this made no difference to Khayelihle who was recently spotted on the streets by a heartbroken fan.

Once upon a time South African soccer player Khayelihle Shozi had a very promising career.

The talented soccer star played for the famous local soccer team, Mamelodi Sundowns.

Shozi also played for TS Galaxy.

His success on the soccer field garnered many fans who truly believed that he had a bright future ahead of him.

This is why so many people are heartbroken to see that the bright future is now a distant memory for Shozi who now reportedly roams the streets of the Vaal area.

Reports reveal that the promising soccer player had previously been sent to a psychiatric hospital to be evaluated after he went missing more than once.

Spotting Shozi looking thoroughly forlorn, a fan snapped a photo that was shared on Twitter.

The post left many soccer fans feeling truly sad for Shozi and his family who exhausted themselves trying to get him help. Even Pitso Mosimane commented on the post and expressed his sadness at the matter.

“Very sad to see this image. His combination with Percy Tau was amazing. We even promoted him to the Senior Team ahead of Percy.

“He came through the same development program, like Pitso, Keletso , Promise etc. Cassius (debut in preseason Zambia July 2019). Special talent!” said Pitso.
