1 min read

Former Zimbabwean goalkeeper George Chigova, nicknamed “Zikeeper,” has tragically passed away at 32.

Having suffered a heart attack in July, interrupting his career, he recently returned to training before collapsing.

His untimely death closely follows the passing of former national team player and head coach Rahman Gumbo.

Chigova, known for his commanding presence in goal, played for Dynamos, Polokwane City, and SuperSport United.

SuperSport coach Gavin Hunt’s initial medical update four months ago indicated a serious condition for the big stopper.

Starting at Gunners, Chigova moved to Dynamos before joining SuperSport in 2014.

He later played for Polokwane City before returning to Pretoria in 2020.

The goalkeeper, who represented Zimbabwe 30 times, including at the African Cup of Nations, leaves behind a legacy in the football community.
