It is with great sadness that we learn of the passing of John Moeti, fondly known as "Dungi," a former player and captain of Orlando Pirates Football Club.
John was more than just a player; he was leader of men.
John was a prime example of a soccer player who defied the odds. Despite his small stature, John was a powerhouse on the field, exhibiting unmatched energy and tenacity. He was known for his ability to dominate the midfield, breaking up opposition attacks and launching his own with ease. Despite his quiet demeanour, John was a competitor, never backing down from a challenge and always giving his all for the team.
During his time at the club (between 1994 and 1999), John’s relentless work ethic, combined with his natural talent, made him one of the most valued midfielders in the country. His passion for the game, unwavering commitment, and guidance on and off the field was exemplary.
From all of us at Orlando Pirates Football Club, we convey our heartfelt and deepest sympathy to the Moeti Family and pledge our profound moral support.
We supplicate that God gives the family fortitude at this moment of extreme grief and pain.
