Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila coach Vladislav Heric has lost his father, Lazarous, on Tuesday following a long illness.
Heric senior was 81-years-old.
Speaking to FARPost a clearly devastated Heric described his late father as a hero not only to him but to many around their area.
“He was someone who loves sports, Music, he was a very big fan of Gospel Music. I managed to get him here (South Africa) at one stage and he was very proud of what I was doing but he was not very happy with how black people leaved in this location (Cape Town),” he said.
Heric is not sure when he would be flying back to Serbia for the burial as the country is still on a lockdown.
The 53-year-old is currently on a ‘special leave’ at GladAfrica Championship side TTM.
