Former Bafana Bafana coach Ted Dumitru has died

Former Bafana Bafana coach, Ted Dumitru, has died after collapsing at the Eastgate Shoping Centre, in Johannesburg, this morning.

Dumitru also coached some of South Africa's big teams; Kaizer Chiefs, Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns.

He led Kaizer Chiefs to back-to-back PSL titles between 2004 and 2005.

Xolani Gwala spoke to EWN sports reporter, Marc Lewis, about Dumitru's sudden death.

Apparently he was shopping at Woolworths in Eastgate Shopping Centre. Paramedics rushed to the scene trying to reinstate him.

Marc Lewis, EWN reporter

If you take a look at the titles he had won, and the teams he coached, and taking South Africa to an Afcon, it's a huge loss for South African football.

Marc Lewis, EWN reporter

If you're a soccer fan like all of us, it's very easy to remember him with his trademark sunglasses.
