CAPE TOWN – The football community reacted on Tuesday to the news of the brutal murder of former player Marc Batchelor.
The former footballer was gunned down in his vehicle in what appears to be a professional hit by two gunmen on motorbikes in front of his house in Olivedale, Johannesburg.
In an online statement this morning, Orlando Pirates said:
“Orlando Pirates Football Club is saddened by the news of the passing of former striker Marc Batchelor who was shot in Johannesburg last night.
“From all of us at Orlando Pirates Football Club, we convey our heartfelt and deepest sympathy to the Batchelor family and pledge our profound moral support.
