AmaZulu: We Are Saddened by Xulu’s Passing!
Posted: 5 May 2020
AmaZulu were struck with saddening news after hearing of the passing of one of their greatest ever players, Cedric Sugar Ray Xulu. The former star, who was blessed with skill, precision, and natural ability on the ball, passed on in a Durban hospital yesterday (4th May 2020).
The club’s General Manager, Lunga Sokhela, spoke fondly of the legend, saying “We are deeply hurt by the passing of Sugar Ray Xulu because he was the son of the club; he was the icon of this club. AmaZulu is dignified because of great players like him. I remember when we launched the Sugar Ray Xulu Benefit Programme, Jomo Sono said he looked up to Xulu, so that tells you how great a person and player he was,” concluded Sokhela.
The club has asked for space during these difficult times and will communicate more in due course. From all of us here at The Beautiful Game, we send our thoughts and prayers to the club, family and friends of Cedric “Sugar Ray” Xulu.
