HARARE – Football legend, George Shaya, who died last week aged 77, was buried at Warren Hills Cemetery in Harare Saturday.

Shaya was accorded a state-assisted funeral, with scores of people, including President Emmerson Mnangagwa paying homage to the late football icon.

The former Dynamos striker, considered one of Zimbabwe’s greatest players ever, died at his home in Glen Norah A last Tuesday.

He battled diabetes which led to the amputation of his legs, last year. 

Shaya, nicknamed The Mastermind, was a five-time footballer of the year in 1969, 1972, 1975, 1976 and 1977 – a feat still to be matched or surpassed.
