The Zimbabwe Football Association conveys its heartfelt condolences to the Shaya Family and the local football fraternity at large following the sad passing of football legend George “Mastermind” Shaya, an exceptional footballer who excelled during the colonial era, one of the most difficult periods in the history of Zimbabwe.

His legacy of excellence as a serial winner and record-five time soccer star lives eternally to inspire many generations of local footballers.

Shaya (77) passed away early on Tuesday at his home in Glen Norah, Harare.

He is the only player to be named Soccer Star of The Year five times, that is, in 1969, 1972, 1975, 1976 and 1977.

Dynamos have since written to ZIFA seeking facilitation of conferment of national hero status on the late Shaya.
