Former Orlando Pirates manager, Lawrence "Teddy Bear" Ngubane has died.

It is still unclear what happened, but Ngubane has battled an undisclosed illness for quite a while.

Ngubane’s former colleague at Pirates and now player agent, Mike Makaab has paid tribute to Ngubane on twitter, saying he has lost a good friend.

“Today I lost a great friend, football legend as a manager, Lawrence Ngubane. May your soul RIP and may your family be blessed with faith,” tweeted Makaab on Sunday.
