Condolences are pouring in following the passing of former Berea FC football legend Duda Moonsamy, affectionately known as “Shorty”. Moonsamy died on Saturday morning.
Members of the Manning Rangers and Berea sporting fraternity, which he was part of, say he was a devoted member and a dedicated football player.
Moonsamy will be remembered for his remarkable display in the cup final when Sundowns were leading 3-nil and he turned the game around and Berea won.
President of the South African Soccer Federation Professional League, during 1978 and 1991 Ashwin Trikamjee says football has lost a true legend.
“Condolences to the Moonsamy family. When I had the absolute pleasure and delight of meeting this shorty as I call him shorty young man. He is an amazing footballer. My mind is just going back – it’s like a rewind there was nothing that Duda would say no to, he was just full of energy, enthusiastic and of cause on the football field, he had very few peers. As short as he was, small built as he was, he was an amazing footballer and it was not a long time before he became the darling of the crowd at curries fountain.”
