Legend Ian Palmer has finally passed on. The news of his death was made known through Twitter by Orlando Pirates.
The striker used to play for Orlando Pirates and went on to coach at different clubs in Mzansi, impressing many.
Mzansi social media users and football fans took to the comments section to send Palmer’s family messages of condolences
According to the news, Palmer was 55 years old when he died and the cause of his untimely passing is unknown at this time.
Palmer started his career as a striker for the PG Rangers but it was with Pirates that he moved his career to the next level in the 1980s.
His playing career, however, was cut short owing to a renal condition.
In 2016, Palmer received a kidney transplant.
