JOHANNESBURG – Former Bafana Bafana coach Ted Dumitru has died after collapsing at the Eastgate Shopping Centre, east of Johannesburg, this morning.
He was treated by paramedics on the scene.
There are no further details available at this stage but centre management is expected to release a statement related to an incident in the mall later today.
The 76-year-old, nicknamed ‘The Professor’, led Kaizer Chiefs to back-to-back PSL titles in 2004 and 2005.
He also coached Kaizer Chiefs, Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates coach.
The Romanian-born coach was one of few coaches to have managed South Africa’s so-called ‘Big Three’.
