"Ntuthuko was a dedicated and promising young man"

The family and friends of KAS Eupen defender Ntuthuko Radebe have described him as a humble and promising young man.

Radebe was traveling with four of his friends in the early hours of Tuesday morning from Newcastle, when they were involved in a car accident.

No one survived the incident.

The 22-year-old was recently on the lookout for a new club after leaving the Belgian club at the end of his contract last month.

He also had plans to play for the PSL this coming season.

His friend of 12 years, Dumisani Dlamini says Radebe was meant to travel back to Belgium that day.

It was his second car, he was building a home for his grandmother as we speak. A very committed individual.

He was a very promising young boy, inspired a lot of people around Newcastle and KZN with the talent he was given. A very humble boy.
