Tlolane will wear the boots when they play SuperSport United in their crucial and final Absa Premiership match on Saturday afternoon.

Tshehla – who was Mamelodi Sundowns attacker Percy Tau and Royal Eagles’ Dumisani tau’s cousin – died on February 15 in a car accident outside Polokwane in Limpopo.

“I have decided to honour my friend the late Mogau Tshehla by wearing these special boots in our last game. We will win this one for him. May his soul continue to rest in peace,” Tlolane said.

Rise and Shine have to win from their last match to ensure they avoid any prospect of finishing 15th and falling into the Absa Premiership/NFD play offs.
